I’m still knitting the sweater for dh and I need help in understanding how to knit up the neck shaping. This is done bottom up.
Here’s the instructions:
Work in est patt across first 37 (43, 49, 53) sts, join in new strand and BO center 16 sts, work in patt to end of row. (I understand this part, and assume that this is done on the WS since the prior instructions for the front say to end with a RS row.)
Working both sides at once with separate balls of yarn, BO at each neck edge 3 sts 1 (1, 2, 2) times, 2 sts 1, (2, 2, 2) times, and 1 st 3 (2, 1, 2) times. Continue in est patt on rem 29 (34, 38, 41) sts to same length as back, ending with a RS row. BO all sts in patt.
So, it’s the first sentence of the above paragraph that I don’t understand, or at least I can’t visualize it well enough to give it a go. It’s not the number parts, I’m just confused on the actual binding off of the sts. Am I to bind of the sts on the WS or RS of the piece? When I bind off these sts will my working yarns be in the proper place for the return row? It looks to me like when I bind off the sts my working yarn won’t be at the beginning of the sts to be knit (hope you can understand what I mean!). Any advice will be greatly appreciated!!!
