Hello all! Just found this site today and so very excited to be a part of it. I have a question. I am finishing the front of a v neck sweater and the pattern reads Bind off 9 sts at each armhole edge once, then 10 sits twice for shoulders. Does that mean that I BO 9 sts knit across to the next arm hole and BO 9 sts, turn then BO 10 knit across, and BO 10, then turn and BO 10 and then BO 10? I am a bit confused. Thanks for any help you can offer.
Yes, that’s right.
Hi and welcome!
Since you can really only bind off at the beginning of a row (try binding off at the end of the row and you’ll see that your yarn is in the wrong place to continue knitting), you want to bind off 9sts, knit to the end of the row, turn, bind off 9sts and again work to the end of the row and turn. Now you essectially repeat the process: bind off 10sts, knit to the end, turn, bind off 10sts and work to the end of the row. Repeat again with another set of 10st bind offs
