Dorset Buttons

Awhile back my chapter of the EGA ran a program on dorset buttons. A friend of mine had her 60th birthday this past weekend and I thought I would dabble and make something for her.

Shawl Pin

I’ve known this friend for over 20 years. We met when our kids were 5 and in preschool together. She is an avid knitter and loves shawls so I decided to try to make her a shawl pin. Blue is her favorite color so I chose two different blues to go around the edge.

It was so fun and easy to make. Casting the edge in two different colors was a little fiddly, but overall very fun.

I took a class for the above button from the Lace Museum in Sunnyvale (over zoom). Super fun and easy to make!
