Shape armholes: Cast off 6 sts beg next 2 rows. 83 (87-91) sts.**
My understanding of this is that I am to bind off the first 6 stitches of the next row and then knit ALL the way across. Then I am to bind off the first 6 stitches of the next row and purl my way across.
Wouldn’t this screw up the symmetry of the sweater? Shouldn’t I be casting off 6 stitches knitting across and then binding off the last 6 stitches of that row (ie knit row) in order to preserve the symmetry? Is this what I’m supposed to do, and have I just read the instrcutions wrong?
