Hi all. I’m working on a Debbie bliss pattern (Smock coat) and am on the right front where you’re supposed to start making the vertical slots for the buttons (it’s like a double breasted coat, where there needs to be two buttons…one in the middle and one on the edge).
The pattern follows:
K3, yo, work 2 tog, seed 14, work 2 tog, yo, seed st 2, turn and cont on these 23 sts. only.
Work 6 rows more (for vertical slot) on these sts.
Leave these sts on spare needle.
Then the pattern continues with the other sts being worked up on its own, to then be joined together with the pattern above. So, when I joined it, there’s a distinct vertical slot. However, the “hole” for the button is not showing on the edge side. When it says to work 6 rows more, I’m assuming I’m supposed to do the exact same pattern (k3, yo, etc), 6 more times. Am I right? Because if that’s the case, every time I work 2 tog on the wrong side, it eliminates the hole that the yo provided. Please help. Thanks!
