Now it's time to put in our button holes. So I'm going to stay in my knit one, pearl one ribbing. So I'm going to work the two stitches first and then to do our button hole I'm going to do a yarn over and I'm going to knit two together. And that will create a hole right under the yarn over. So what I've done with the yarn over is I've put the stitch in that the knit two together has taken out. And then I'll continue for six stitches to place in between the buttons, staying in my rib. And then I'll do it again. I'll have the yarn over and then I'll knit two together. So this is meant to have a small button. And when you go back on the other side these will be worked into the pattern as part of the ribbing was before.
