Ok, after binding off 9 sts at beg of the next row, I worked until there were 35 sts on RH needle. I joined another ball of yarn and bound off the center 27 sts, then I worked to the end. So now, I'm at the part where I'm supposed to work both sides at once. Both needles have 35 sts.
The next set of instructions say to bind off 9 sts at beg of the next 3 rows. So, does that mean, I bind off 9, then work to the end of the row (which now puts me at the 27 sts bound off earlier for the center), turn, bind off 9, work to the end of the row, turn, bind off 9 and work to the end of the row, (which would put me back at the 27 sts bound off for the center)?
I have 2 problems at this point. One, after binding off 9 sts on 3 rows, the next set of instructions say to bind off 10 sts at beg of the next 4 rows, but at this point I'll only have 17 sts left. I don't have enough stiches to bind off 40 sts...10 x 4 = 40. Two, since I'm back at the center with a gap of 27 sts that have been bound off, I now have to jump to the other side, and my working yarn is on the complete opposite needle. I don't see how I'm supposed to get to my working yarn, so I can start the 9 sts bind off for the next 3 rows.
This may be something I'll have to take to my local yarn shop and have one of their knitters show me first hand, but I sure would love to be able to figure this out.
Any help is very much appreciated.
