The k2, yfwd, k2tog makes the buttonhole.

Then you're knitting 19 across the front of the cardigan. You're binding off 4 at the armhole, and you'll have one stitch left from that which is included in the 39 stitch count. So you'll have 39 st on your needle between the two armholes. Bind off for the second armhole and knit to the end.

Even tension comes with practice.

Do you mean gauge, as in stitches per inch?

Knit up a swatch with the needles and yarn called for in the pattern that's about 5" x 5 ". Then measure how many stitches you have over four inches.

If you have more stitches than the gauge of the pattern, then you need to go up a needle size. If you have too few stitches, you need to go down a needle size.

You just follow the directions one after another. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
