Bind off in the middle for neck

patterns

#1

Hi all,

I am working a Raglan pattern, so far so good. Now here is the problem, I am to bind off 8 sts. in the middle for the neck shaping. Unfortunately, I have an odd number of stitches. What can I do?
Change the bind off to 7 or 9 stitches so it´s even on both sides
OR
Have one side 7 stitches and the otherside 8 stitches for the neck shaping.
Thanks for any help!

When that happens, change to 7 or 9 sts depending on which you think best. That way the shoulders are even.

Thank you! I thought so, just wanted confirmation from someone with more experience :grinning:
