I started making this http://gailbable.tripod.com/id41.html and have just finished making the sleeve. I don’t understand what is meant by this:
“Bind off leaving last stitch on needle. With right sides together slip stitch sleeve closed being careful to close up all the holes at the underarm. Place last stitch on left hand needle. Knit 2 tog and knit across to next marker.”
This instruction isn’t in all the versions online. to me it means - leave one stitch on the needle when I bind off and which I then bring it back up to the top and knit it into the back. I know that’s not what its meant as that would mean the cuff was stuck to the back - so what does it mean? Crochet it closed or something?
Tempted just to bind it all off and sew up sleeves using mattress stitch and ignore it…
