As you near the first opposing end of the buttonhole, begin to fan the stitches to round the corner. Now this fan is only going to be on one end and a bar tack on the other, alright? Alright.

    Hmm. I’d normally use an awl or stylet to prick a hole through the rounded end of the proto-buttonhole and widen it to get a keyhole shape. It’d help with seating the button more neatly (as in preventing the buttonhole from gaping open), especially when the button is big (and thus has/needs a thick shank).
