I am a novice knitter and I am confused on neck shaping for an open front sweater I am knitting.
I am un sure how to do this bind off (see pattern below).
I am knitting a simple Stockinette Stitch.
1) Do I bind off knit side (3 sts) then purl back and bind off next knit row or do I skip that next knit row?
2) Is every other row considered the knit side? or do you count the purl side too?
3) How do I do reverse shaping....does that mean I start binding with a purl stitch?
Cast on 32 sts....ribbing 3” and then body...Stockinette until 17”
At front edge, bind off 3 sts once, then 4 sts every other row 3 times, then 2 sts every other row twice.
Work even on 13 sts if needed, until piece measures same as back to shoulders.
Bind off all sts.
Work to correspond to left front, reverse shaping
