Sorry folks if this is a repeat question - but I have just spent an hour browsing through the threads & forums and am going blind trying to find what I need.
I am knitting my first sweater with buttons, and now I know why I haven't tried this before. I have picked up my stitches along the front, done my first row of K1,P1 and now on row 2 I am supposed to: Rib 3, cast off 1st, (rib 6,cast off 1st)
the next row reads: Rib 2, cast on 1 st (rib 7, cast on 1st)
I have done this about 5 times now, and no matter what I do I only end up with a tiny little hole, and the picture of the patern shows rather large buttons so I know I am doing something wrong. I have watched the video on buttons, but that is for regular knit and not a sideways ribbed row.
I hope this makes sense to someone out there who can give me other options or help me work this mess out.
