I am knitting a cardigan in a diamond lace pattern and have knit myself to the point where I have to start shaping armholes.
I have to bind-off 11 stitches. Easy enough but this puts me halfway into a diamond. As the pattern involves yarn overs with corresponding decreases, should I subtract the decrease for the bound off places where a yarn over would have been?
Am I over thinking this?
Should I just do whatever and make sure that I do the same thing on the front pieces?
Why couldn't the pattern at least tell me how many stitches I should end with after the armholes are shaped? (Then I feel I could figure it out.)
Please help! (It will be such a pretty sweater-- it's such yummy yarn.)
