Dislike #2

Sewing seams in my knits is my #1 dislike.

Sewing on buttons is #2.

I finished weaving in all the ends on the Sawtelle sweater I wrote about yesterday.  So now it’s time for the buttons.

I think the biggest issue I have with buttons is that I don’t know how to secure them on a worsted weight knitted garment.

Should I sew a strip of fabric/ribbon/bias tape to the underside of the button area to give it more substance?

Should I do the same with the buttonhole side for stability and to keep the buttonholes from stretching?
