I am kind of new to knitting. After a lot of reading, video watching and practicing with small projects, I am finishing my first sweater! But I need help with the bind off to shape the shoulder.
I have successfully practiced different types of bind offs; however I don’ quite understand the “shape shoulders” portion of the pattern I’m following. It reads:
[INDENT][I]“At each armhole edge, bind off 8 sts 0 (0, 0, 0, 1) time, 7 sts 0 (1, 3, 4, 3) times, then 6 sts 4 (3, 1, 0, 0) times [24 (28, 29, 29, 30) sts rem]. Place rem sts onto st holder or waste yarn”[/I][/INDENT]
How do I do that? How do I bind off at the extremes (“each armhole edge”)? What do I do with the stitches in the middle? If I start binding off the right side and the knit RS until I reach the final sts of the left side I can bind off those but my working yarn will be at the extreme, could someone explain this 4 binding off rows (I’m knitting the XL version - last option entre parentheses).
Your help will be greatly appreciated!
