Button Holes
I just finished up my toddlers cardigan over the weekend, and now that I have done it, I'm not entirely sure I did the button holes right. It said to knit 5, bo 2. Does that mean the 5th stitch I knit gets passed over the first stitch of the two bind off stitches, or am I actually knitting 5, knit one, knit one, psso the first one, knit one, psso which would actually consist of 8 stitches? Does this question make sense?

Thanks so much!

Yes, it makes sense. You usually knit 5 and then ignore those 5 and begin the bind off by knitting 2 more and using those for the first BO.
