Help! Join second strand?

Hello Everyone,

I’m doing the skill level easy pattern for a sweater. The pattern
can be reviewed here; http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/khs-stripedYokePullover.html?noImages=

I’m doing the back and it says ‘join second strand’. I’m
doing mine all in one color. Does this mean second
color or? I fear it does not and I’ve already bound off!
(can one frog a bind off?)

:frog:

Did you bind off all the stitches or just the center ones on the back?

A sweater will have you join a second strand so you can work the shoulders each with their own strand. If you only bound off the center, you should be ok.

If you need to frog a bind off, the only stitch that’s difficult is the final one. Once you pick that out, the rest pop off without a problem. I didn’t look at the pattern, because I don’t know where my number is to sign in, and you have to sign in to see the pattern.

Yes, I only bound off the neck, center stitches and then I panicked.
Ok it says to work both ends. This means to have 2 balls or in
My case, skeins of yarn and use one for on shoulder and the
Second for the other? I would have NEVER understood that’s
what they meant.

I love this forum!

Easy…… pfffff What shall I call my skill level? Embryonic?

You’re knitting a SWEATER!!! How can that be embryonic? Hmmm?

You just needed a bit of guidance, is all.

You’re right, one strand per shoulder, and you’re good to go.

In fact, this is why I say to ‘trust the pattern.’ Just do what they say, don’t try to understand, and it usually comes out right in the end. Then you understand.
