I, making a vintage coat and have back finished. I started on front right but the math is wrong and I am stuck because there is many rows of instructions they assume you would know. The pattern is at tudorlinks.com/treasury/worktable/1918kcoat.html. I understand row 17th and repeats but I end up with 110 stitches and pattern says y I should have a 100 and 56 rows done. I have the 56rows. Then it proceeds to explain the buttonholes and where to make them. I understand that. My question is where they say then work *a decreased row and seven rows of pattern, and repeat from * until the stitches are 99 on the needle, and 136 rows above the 6th buttonhole. You would only have 88 rows more and that is not 136 rows above the pattern. Please could someone take a look at the sight and read the pattern and help me. Stuck after the repeats of row 17 and then it jumps to 196th row. Should i continue is pattern after I do the decreases to 99 stitches until I get 136 rows above the 6th button hole. i hope this makes sense. You have to read pattern to understand. Any help would be appreciated. I am making this for my granddaughter.
