This little sweater is knit from the neck down. So the garter stitch ridges are the neckband. To get two ridges you knit 4 rows. The rule is two rows make a ridge.

(RS) Button hole - k2, YO, k2tog, k across.
If you cast on and then your first row is the right side, you would knit that first row, then two more and you will be back to the right side facing for the next row which they give as the "RS Button hole" row in those instructions above.

The body of the sweater is in stockinette, and the edges are garter (knit every row).

I just noticed I said that wrong. You want 4 rows to take you back to the right side row and to get the 4 for the ridges. That is what I thought I had said, but on reading this again I see I didn't say that. Sorry.

Row 1: Knit, RS
Row 2: Knit, WS
Row 3: Knit, RS
Row 4: Knit, WS
Now you are ready to begin a right side row.
