Hi. I'm working on this pattern, originally in the Fall 2008 issue, and I'm completely baffled by the button hole band instructions - K1, yo *k5, pass the 2,3, 4 & 5th over the 1st st, yo; rep to last k1. Has anyone made these? Is there maybe a video or an explanation that would help me make sense of this? I tried to do this myself but instead of ending up w/ 23 stitches I had like 12 or 13. Help!
Well it's definitely going to decrease sts across the row as written, even with the yo's. Are there increases in the following row(s) to componsate for these decreases? Can you quote the line exactly and also the next row or 2?
