Hi there, this is my first post on here! I’m knitting a children’s cardigan and I’ve gotten to knitting the front band and collar in rib. I’ve got 2 questions:
- The rib pattern asks for 9 stitches and to K2, *P1, K1, rep from * to last St, K1
I’ve done this and made 5 button holes and from what I gather this is a knit 1 purl 1 pattern with 2 knit stiches at either end and on the reverse 2 purl stitches at either end. Is this correct?
- For the collar shaping it asks to "working Inc sts into rib pattern, Inc one st at end of next row, then in every foll alt row until there are 25 sts.
I’m so confused. I’ve looked up on YouTube how to Inc in rib and so many options. But if I increase at the end when there are 2 knit stitches what will that new stitch require? Knit or purl?!
Thanks in advance
