My "Newer" Buttonhole, What Do You Think....

I fiddled with this, mostly in my head.  I searched and searched through my books and DVD's, searched online, emailed my knitting buddies, looked at blogs and etc.

None of it was doing what I wanted AND to keep it simple.  Too much ravel cord, needles in hold, WY, snipping, sewing and sometimes crocheting.

So, I came up with's pretty close to what I want the end result to be.  Simple and quick to do, tailored, lays fairly flat and no droopy hole.  This is a combination of a gate peg bind off and e-wrapping.
