4-Hole Backing Buttons


For a professional finish to your knits, use backing buttons to reduce wear and tear on the knitting.

SKU: N/A Category: Tag:


When sewing buttons onto knitting, backing buttons should be used to provide stability for the garment.  If a button is sewn directly to the knitted fabric, the buttonbands will pull and distort over time.  Using a backing button on the other side of the fabric from the button that shows, provides strength.

Choose a backing button that is the same size or a little smaller than the outer button, and has the same number of holes.  These backing buttons have 4 holes, suitable for use with a 4-hole button on the public side of the garment, as well as a shank button.  If you need a 2-hole backing button, click here.
