I am working on my first big project, a knitted jumper. I have worked the back of the jumper to the top and now have to bind off each side on 2 rows 6x5 stitches.
The jumper has a design with knit stitches and purl stitches on every row right and wrong side (making zigzag 3D lines across it). I just would like to check if it is correct to carry on following the pattern of the design this is to say use pattern binding and then carry on stitching as described on the pattern for the rest of the line (on each line). For example my pattern says:
Row 1: *knit 2, purl 2 start again from *
Row 2: *purl 1, knit 2, purl 1 start again from *
Row 3: *knit 2, purl 2 start again from *
This means I need to bind off 5 stitches and start purl 2, *knit 2, purl 2 till the end of the row
Then I will bind off 5 stitches on the wrong side and start with knit 1, purl 1, *purl 1, knit 2, purl 1, etc…
Am I correct?
Thank you for your help as I am feeling quite confused right now!
