I really need some help!
I am knitting my first sweater for my 9 month old son…
Here’s the pattern…
Row 2: Cast on 5 sts (right button band), knit these 5, pm, purl to last marker, K5
Row 3: k5, sm, *knit to 1 stitch before next marker, yo, k1, sm, k1, yo; repeat from * 3 more times, knit to end row
Row 4: k5, purl to last 5 sts, k5
Repeat Rows 3 & 4 twice more (increasing at shapeline markers as set)
Buttonhole Row: (RS) k1, k2tog, yo, k2, sm, *knit to t st before next marker, yo, knit to last 5 sts, k2, yo, k2tog, k1
Next Row: (WS) k5, purl to last 5 sts, k5
Repeat Rows 3 & 4 above, increasing as set, making buttonholes after every 10 garter stitch ridges . The buttonholes will sit between the ridges…
Continue until you can count 18 pairs of eyelets along the raglan shapelines, ending after a wrong side row
Work 2 rows even without increases…
Okay… here are my questions…
What does work 2 rows even without increases mean? What two rows?
When do I do this? AFter I’ve knitted all of the buttonholes at the very end? Or do I knit these two rows after I’ve knitted each buttonhole?
Lordy Lordy Lordy… I really love knitting but somehow, I’ve buggered my sweater and have to pick back 7 rows anyway.
Any help with this would be really very much appreciated…
