Begin knitting in the round by overlapping the three stitches that form the garter stitch border at the beginning and end of the row, making sure the side with the button holes is on top. Transfer the 3 stitches at the end of the row from the right-hand needle to a cable needle, then alternating one stitch from the left-hand needle and one stitch from the cable hand needle transfer all six stitches to the right-hand needle, starting with the last stitch on the row, interleaving them in the process. Your working yarn should be ready to continue knitting on around. Place row marker.

From this point, the garment will be worked in the round. With the wrong side facing you, slip the last three stitches of the row (the garter stitch edging) off onto a holding needle. Bring the stitches on the holding needle around and align them with the 3-stitch garter stitch edge at the beginning of the row so that they overlap (see below), making sure that the edge with the button holes is on top and the edge without the button holes is underneath. Slip stitches one at a time onto the right-hand needle alternately from the left hand needle and the holding needle until all six stitches have been transferred over to the left-hand needle.

Place a row marker. This joins the work for knitting in the round with the right side of the garment on the outside and the wrong side on the inside.

32nd Row: Working in the round, knit until there are six stitches left on the needle. K2tog three times. (89 sts)
33rd Row: *(Kfb, k1) repeat from * to last 3 stitches on the needle. Kfb, K2tog. (132 sts)
34th Row: Knit.
