button band help
Hi,
I am working on a baby sweater and at the button band, and it says to pick up 3 stitches for every 4 rows? does that mean for every 4 stitches i pick up 3?
Please HELP!

That's exactly what it means. If you pick up a stitch in each row, the button band will end to too long and sag. Just pick up 3, skip one all the way up. The skipped ones won't show, I promise.
