Making a button hole band - ?Rib 2tog?
I have the book "Yarn Girls' Guide to Kid Knits" and I have a question that does not appear to have instruction in the book. I am creating the button hole band on a cardigan and the instruction for the row I am on is:
Rib3, (YO, Rib2tog, Rib11) 4 times, Rib2tog, YO, Rib 3
I am good with the rib3, I found instruction for the YO as well as how to knit two together and purl two together but the book does not describe how to do a Rib2tog to create a button hole. So, when I get to that instruction I am between two purl stitches meaning the next two stitches I do together are one purl and one knit - so do I:
-YO then put the needle through the next two stitches purl wise? because the next stitch after the two together is a knit...
- YO then put the needle through the next two stitches knit wise? because the next stitch after the two together is a knit...
- YO then put the needle through the next two stitches and do a purl stitch followed by a knit stitch then slide both off the left needle? because the next stitch after the two together is a knit...
Please advise as I cannot continue finishing the project at this point. I have searched the internet, your website, and referred to my encyclopedia of knitting without result. I would appreciate the help.
