Hi gals, my first post ~ lovely to have found this forum! I am making my first baby sweater and have ripped out the right front numerous times now as I’m getting a hole where it shouldn’t be. I’ve had to reverse the pattern as it’s for a boy and I need the buttonholes on the right for a girl. I don’t know if I’ve done the reverse wrong or I’m not getting the YO correctly. The buttonhole is done in two rows as follows:
Working from bottom up: Cast on, then 4 rows Garter Stitch.
Row 5 (WS): K4, p to end.
Row 6 (RS): K across to last st; bind off 1 st, K last st.
Row 7 (WS): K1, yo, K2, p to end.
Row 5 (WS): P across to last 4 st, K4.
Row 6 (RS): K 1 st, bind off 1 st, K across.
Row 7 (WS): P across to last 3 sts, K2 yo, K1
Sorry to be so long, hope it makes sense. When I get done with Row 8 which is just Knit across and I look at it all, there is weird holes hanging around the buttonhole area. Don’t know how to describe it, but I think I’m messing up on the yarn over thing. Thanks for any advice you might offer. Deb
