once again, my button hole dilema
Ok, so i've tried several button hole methods and I always end up with the same problem....I get an extra "hole", or gap, right outside one of the button hole corners. I've figured out now where its happening.... it all starts at the beginning. I bring the yarn to the front, slip the first stitch, then bring the yarn to the back. Then its time to start binding off for the button hole. Everything goes fine until I'm knitting the next row, the one on top of the button hole
The gap I'm getting is the space between the first slipped stitch (The one that the yarn "wraps around" at the beginning) and the next stitch. No matter how tight I knit those stitches, the gap is always there. Is it because that first stitch gets slipped and not knitted, and therefore has to stretch a bit further up? Is it because the stitch thats normally next to it was cast off at the beginning of the buttong hole? Does this make sense at all? That little gap is driving me crazy!!!!

Thanks
