I'm fairly new to knitting, and am near finishing my first sweater project. The front and back are finished, and I would like to use the 3-needle bind off to attach them to each other across the top. Is this possible? What do I do with the stitches in the neck opening? Can I do the 3-needle bind off between the shoulder and the neck opening, then do regular bind off in the opening, and then do the 3-needle bind off again for the stitches on the other side of the neck opening?
I've seen a lot of mention of 3-needle bind off used with shoulder seams; can I assume this is the seam where the arm attaches to the rest of the body (as opposed to the seam at the top between the front & the back of the sweater)?
