I need help with the neck of a pullover.... I did everything I read in the forum and still there is a problem....
The original instructions are: "when there are 42 sts, bind off center 12 sts for neck and working both side at once, bind off from each neck edge 6 sts once, 5 sts once. Bind off rem 3 sts each side."
So What I did:
I got to the row where the decreases got me to 42 sts. Next row was a purl row (WS): I purled 15, got a new strand and BO 12 middle sts with it, and continued with this new strand
to purl the remaining 15 sts.
Next row (RS), I knitted the 15 sts, dropped the strand, picked up the other one, BO 6 sts for the neck, knitted the remaining 9 sts.
Next row (WS) I purled the 9 sts, dropped the strand, picked up the other one, BO 6 sts and purled the remaining 9 sts.
Now - I uploaded a picture for the outcome.
I have 2 problems:
first, one part of the BO is directed to one side, and the other to the other side(!) that creates a bad looking gap....and in general I think this is not how it's suppose to look right?
Also, I have a bump at the side of the neck where the BO of the 6 sts was done last...
Any ideas?? this is soooooo frustrating...!
