Picking up stitches for the button hole band

by Anon


Hi hope you can help me with this!

My pattern reads:

Beginning at bottom edge of right front pick up and knit 3 stitches to every 4th row. That's what I am stumped on.

Do they mean pick up the three stitches in three rows and skip the fourth row?

Not sure if I am making myself clear or not! Just hope you can help me. Thank you

YOUR ANSWER



Hi, yes you are making yourself clear.

If I was doing this Pattern and had these instructions for the button band I would be doing exactly as you have suggested and picking up 3 stitches for 3 rows then missing one row to the top of the front edge.

Other knitters may do it differently but for me it would be important that the stitches are picked up fairly evenly.

Missing one row out of four is not as even as I would like it, but at least it is regular so the pattern of stitches per row would be the same all the way up the front edge.

From the photo you supplied, it looks like you are doing a great job. Congratulations!
