Garter St button band
I'm making a vintage sailor collar sweater for my mom and the button band is in garter stitch. The bottom 3" is 1x1 rib and the rest (until the collar) is stockinette. The button band seems to be shorter than the rest. Is there a way to remedy this? I've been tryint to knit these 4 sts VERY loosely, but the gauge still seems different. Any advice?

Is the button band just 4 stitches of garter on the end? If so, just knit it like the pattern says, and it should work out when you block the piece.

Yes, it's just 4 sts at the edge of the piece. I've been knitting them VERY loosely and it seems to be okay except WAAAY back at the beginning with the ribbing.
