(Cast off is the same as bind off, right?)
When do you count the first bind off? You have to k2 before you finish a cast off, so I guess the first time you "pass the 1st stitch over the 2nd" would be 1 bind off?
So if a pattern says "cast off 3 sts. k2..." I should end up doing that "pass the 1st stitch over the 2nd" 3 times before I do the k2, correct?
