I posted earlier and tried the replies, but am still having trouble.
Next Row (WS) *K 1, p 1; rep from * across, dec 1 st at center of back (161) (have done this)
Next Row K 6 *p1, k 1; rep from * to last 5 sts, k 5. Continue in pat as established until band measures 2" continuing buttonholes as necessary. Bind off.
I did the 1st row and it was fine. The 2nd row I’m not sure of. I did the K 6, p1, k1; to the last 5 sts, k 5. The problem is The last 6 sts are K. So I have 6 K, on each side.
I start each row with K 6, p1, k 1 to last 6 sts. which are K (which is how it works out).
I sure am not getting a rib st. What am I doing wrong?:??
