help with buttonholes!!
I'm stuck on making these darn buttonholes!
The pattern initially read:
Next Row:Rib 4, cast off 1 st, (rib 15, cast off 1 st) 4 times, rib 3
Next Row: Rib 4, cast on 1 st, (rib 16, cast on 1 st) 4 times, rib 4

I found these buttonholes were way too small so a kind reader gave me this pattern to increase the cast off to 2 st.
Rib 3, cast off 2 st, (rib 14, cast of 2 st) 4 times, rib 3
I'm okay to this point but am stuck on the pattern to do the second row. Would it be:
Rib 3 cast on 2 st, (rib 15, cast on 2 st) 4 times, rib 4?
Also, when casting the stitches back on, I have them end up on the left needle, so do I then just knit them in pattern to get them on the right needle? Obviously I'm new to all this so I hope someone can help. Thanks
