Questions? Check the Ravelry thread first.

Today we will cast on for the body with with the Two-Tail Long-Tail Cast-on, then we will move our working yarn over to the end of the button band, as well as go over making buttonholes. Just a reminder that buttonholes are made on *both* button bands. And if your row gauge is different than the pattern gauge, be sure to account for that when creating your buttonholes as we work our way up the body.

Have you already created your project page on Ravelry? If not, visit the Solstice Cardi pattern page to cast on.

Happy knitting!
