You put them across where you want the buttons to be. :rofling: Sorry!

I just kind of eyeballed it. I put one at the base of the collar ribbing, and then as often as it looked good. Since it was a top down sweater, I knew I could knit it as long as it needed to be between the next-to-last buttonhole and the last one, which I put a couple of rows from the bind off. If it was an adult sweater, I'd do a lot more planning.

I come up with my own smart *** answers, thank you!

It looks like you'll have a five row garter stitch border, then you'll work in stockinette stitch and do gradual increases. Is this a sleeve?

So on row 5 of the stockinette part, you'll increase one stitch at each end--kfb is good for this. Then in row 11 and row 17 you'll also increase one stitch at each end. Then knit in st st until the entire thing from the beginning is 3.75 inches.

I guess I learned early on to follow the pattern blindly and then look to see what it was I actually did.
