Problem with first row of raglan sleeve
I'm knitting Stefanie Japel's pattern "Ubernatural" (, which is a top down raglan cardigan.

I follow the directions and no matter how many times I've started over (thinking I was making mistakes b/c I haven't knit in a few years), the beginning row of the sleeve does NOT look right.


Cast on 40 [50, 60, 70] stitches.
Row 1 (WS): Knit

Row 2 (RS): Make button hole, knit 7 [9, 11, 13] yo pm yo, knit 4 [6, 8, 10] yo pm yo, knit 18 [20, 22, 24] yo pm yo, knit 4 [6, 8, 10] yo pm yo, knit 7 [9, 11, 13]

Row 3 and all odd rows (WS): Knit 3 stitches, purl to last 3 stitches, knit 3 stitches.

Row 4 and all even rows (RS):
Knit to the marker, yo, pass the marker, k1 yo
knit to second marker, yo pass m, k1 yo
knit to third marker, yo, pass m, k1 yo,
knit to fourth marker, k1yo, pass m, yo, knit to end.
In her picture you can see how nice the raglan line looks with the two holes on either sides and the knit stitch running down the middle.

But I get this:

It has to be something I'm doing wrong with row 2 where you place the markers, or Row 4.
Is there an error in the pattern where I need to leave a space between the YOs in Row 2 and do a knit stitch in between?

Thanks!! I could probably do some experimenting and figure this out but I'd really like to finish it before Christmas so I'm in a time crunch.
