I just bound off the back of Enigmatic.
I started the fronts and had recorded how many rows of ribbing I did on the back so I could match it on fronts/sleeves. Well, I realized that I didn’t do the right number for some reason, pattern called for 1-1/4" and I did 1-1/2" (2 rows difference and I’m thinking I did it because it was really close between 1-1/4 and 1-1/2 and wanted to end on the proper side.)
I figured no big deal, I would just do 1-1/2" all around, but I have a problem now with how to do the buttonhole. I’ve never done a garment with a buttonhole before, so I have nothing to go on. The instructions say (after the intended 1-1/4" ribbing)
When piece measures 1-1/2" from cast-on edge (row 3 of cable pattern) work buttonhole as follows…
The problem here being that I’m starting row 1 of the cable pattern at 1-1/2", so already there. How do I fix this? Is it more important that I begin the buttonholes on row 3 of the cable pattern or more important that I do it as close to 1-1/2" as possible, meaning my first pattern row after the ribbing? I’m not ripping the entire back because of 2 extra ribbing rows, that’s just out of the question.
Thanks a bunch!
