I’ve finally jumped into making my first sweater from this pattern. The problem is that I think the pattern may be wrong. I’m working on the left front, but it is looking like the right front since the garter stitch is on the left…it should be on the right for the left front. My problem now is that the right front is where the button holes go. Should I follow the pattern to make the button holes on this side?
I’m also confused here:
[/B]Cast on 16 (18, 20, 22) sts.
[B]Rows 1-4:[/B] Knit.
[B]Row 5 (RS): [/B]Knit.
[B]Row 6 (WS):[/B] P 11 (13, 15, 17), k 5. Rep last 2 rows until piece measures 3 (4, 5, 7) in. [7.5 (10, 12.5, 18 cm] from beg, end with a WS row.
[B]Buttonhole Row (RS):[/B][I][/I]K 2, yo, k2tog, finish row.
Work even until piece measures 5½ (7½, 8½, 10½) in. [14 (19.5, 22, 27 cm] from beg, end with a WS row.
[B]Next Row (RS):[/B] Rep Buttonhole Row.
Continue in St st until piece measures same as Left Front to neck shaping. Shape neck as for Left Front, reversing shaping. Bind off.
Am I supposed to start the buttonhole row after I’ve knit 5 1/2 in?
For the right front it says to shape neck the opposite of the L side but if the pattern is wrong I’m not sure if I should follow the L side instructions of the pattern but put in the button holes.
Sorry for all the questions but I’m super confused.
