This pattern make the most of a tiny bit of fancy yarn and one very special button. They are knit in one piece featuring an i-cord cast on and i-cord selvedge edges. If you have never done an i-cord cast on, this is a great way to learn the technique without a large commitment. There are detailed instructions included, but if you are a visual learner, I found this great youtube video to help.
Pattern includes written and charted instructions and takes about an hour to make.
