Make a backward loop over the right-hand needle and in the next row purl as a regular stitch. See picture here.
Edge/selvege stitches: slip the first stitch as if to knit and purl the last stitch.
Raglan increases: Increase for raglan by making 1 st (m1) on each side of indicated, marked, stitch in every right side (RS) row: m1, sm (slip marker), k1 (raglan st), m1. There are 4 raglan lines, that's why the number of sts increases by 8 in every RS row.
Button bands (bb) are worked together with the body of the cardigan, on 3 sts in the beginning and 3 sts in the end of the row, in garter stitch, all rows knit.
Button holes are worked on the right bb in the end of the RS (right side) row: k1, yo, k 2 tog, p1(edge st). Make button holes in the 1st, 11th, 21th, 31th, and 41th (optional) rows. Alternatively you can work the button bands without button holes and use sew-on snaps.
