Hello. I am making the Legend of Baby Link outfit and I am a bit confused about how to make button holes on the overlapping part of the placket.
Linkto PDF pattern.
I’m working 6 stitches in the garter stitch and every 6th row I’m supposed to make a button hole.
[B]Step 7 Make a buttonhole on the overlapping part of the placket, every 6 rows as follows: when you reach the 6 stitches forming the overlapping button placket, k2, k2tog twice, k2. When you get to the gap on the following row, CO 2 using the backward loop method.[/B]
I guess I’m confused by what it means to k2tog twice. I was thinking it meant to knit 2 stitches together and then to knit the next 2 stitches together. But then I’d be at the end of my 6 stitch placket without 2 additional stitches to knit. It does seem like I’m supposed to decrease by 2 stitches, since I cast 2 on again in the next row.
