How to Make Dorset Buttonscomments (47) March 4th, 2011
Next, wrap the yarn back around the bottom of the button—only position this wrap so that it's one-quarter turn to the right of the first wrap.
(So, to clarify, in the photo above, the first wrap is now at a 45-degree angle. The second wrap is to the right of the first one.)
Wrap the yarn around the ring two more times, placing each wrap one-quarter turn to the right of the previous one. You'll end up with a button that looks like this on one side: The four wraps join in the center to form eight spokes.
On the back of the button, those four wraps will join much closer to the edge of the button. But that's okay—we'll fix this in the next step.
