    Aargh! Buttonhole stitch is not the same as the blanket stitch. The
    buttonhole stitch has a purl.

    The demonstrator said “also known as blanket stitch”. I actually googled
    “buttonhole stitch” and the images shown were exactly what this lady here
    is showing.

  • Karen Ganderton says:

    Yes, what she is demonstrating is the blanket stitch, used for decorative
    edging on non-raveling fabrics. Also, she used a knot to anchor her
    stitches. Buttonhole stitch is similar, but a much sturdier stitch.

    Kinks05 is right. What is referred to as a buttonhole stitch here is a
    blanket stitch. This stitch is known as buttonhole stitching ONLY in
    embroidery. The kind of buttonhole stitch which goes around a button is
    sewn differently, it’s a purl stitch – the thread passes under the tip of
    the needle again to form a knot on the top, illustrated

    I was noticing the details of my blanket last night and was just wondering
    how in the world do they do those stitches. And I felt like a kid trying to
    find out a magician’s magic trick. Thanks for this!
