I purchased this dusty rose jean jacket with the idea of creating a unique one-of-a-kind piece of clothing. The first thing that stood out to me were the buttons. They were branded and I knew I was going to cover them up with yarn.

All these beautiful button coverings really take this jacket to another level.

1 inch Button Covering

Create as many button coverings as you need for your jacket.

Add or subtract rounds to fit the size of your button.

 

Create a magic ring

Rd 1: ch1, sc7 into ring, sl st in 1st sc to join (7 sc)

Rd 2: ch1, *2sc inc* rep 6x, sl st in 1st sc to join (12 sc)

Rd 3: ch1, sc12 in the blo, sl st in 1st sc to join (12 sc)

-Secure yarn from beginning of button (at the magic ring) and weave in ends

Rd 4: ch1, sc2tog rep 6x, sl st in 1st sc to join (12 sc)

-Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing

Weave tail end of yarn in-between each st of rd 4

Slide over button and pull tail end to close and secure

Secure ends and weave in to further secure

GRANNY SQUARES

Make 6 squares or any amount that you would like to fill in the back of your jacket.

Add or eliminate rounds as you prefer.

Sew squares together with the same yarn you used in your squares.

Using a sharp needle, sew to jacket by going around the perimeter in each stitch.

Secure and weave in all ends.

Now there' one thing left to do... take it on a roady trip!

I wore mine out on the Burr Trail, one of Utah's most scenic drives.
