I’m trying this sweater as a learning project (off of the free patterns page), as I have only done scarves, and want to move past the basics. However, I’m already confused!! I’m reading ahead in the pattern (probably my first mistake !) and I see that as the work divides (“The great divide”)I will be using only a portion of the total stitches on my needle to form the right front. Row 2 states: BO 1 st, p to last 3 sts, k1, p1, k1. When I bind off I usually knit one stitch, then knit another, and pull the second stitch over the first and off the needle. How do I BO the 1st stitch on a p row? It may make more sense when I do it…
Also, when it is time to begin the left front the directions say to rejoin the yarn to the remaining stitches. I’m not sure I understand how this will work.
Thanks in advance for your help!
