Left front border: buttonholes
This pattern is for little big stripey hoody king Cole pattern. I'm working on the left front border where the buttonholes are. I've never done buttonholes before and a tad confused how to do it.
I've picked up 49 stitches along the edge. Worked 4 rows of 1 x1 rib starting with p1, k1 row.
Next row: rib 4, cast off 1 st, (rib 8, cast of 1 st) x 4, then rib 3.
Next row: rib 4, cast on 1st, (rib 9, cast on 1st) x 4, rib 4
Work 4 more rows in 1 x 1 rib
What would be the neatest way of doing the buttonholes...I've tried several times and each time it looks wrong and I'm getting fed up of unravelling it and somehow lost a stitch so going to have to redo it all.
Any help would be good thankyou!
