I guess this might be one of those stupid questions as I could just do it and compare...but... I did a k2/p2 ribbing on the edge of a vest, with buttonholes. After I bound off and tried it on, I found it had distorted the whole vest (it was too tight including the bind off).
So I ripped the last row, did one more (stretchier) row and now I'm ready to do a stretchy bind off but I'm at the wrong end ha and not binding off on the right side. Does that matter? I have a feeling it does, won't look as good. I could do one more row to put me at the other end but my buttonholes are getting further and further in there. geeez, this vest just won't get done
