I am working on a Mary Maxim pattern No. 98557-8-9N

The instructions for button band on sweater says work rib to last 20 sts, W&T.

I understand that but when it says turn work does that mean work ribbing back to the beginning?

Next row says Rib to end. Not sure what to do.

YOUR ANSWER


What you are knitting is a short row, the end result will be one less row of stitches on those twenty stitches.

It is used fairly often in knitting patterns to add shaping to a flat piece of knitting.

Without reading your pattern it is hard to be completely sure of the author's meaning and you have not provided the exact wording from your pattern, but my assumption would be that unless the pattern states otherwise, you would knit all the way to the end of row.

The next row is a normal row of rib knitting each stitch (ribwise) across the row.
