First question please, my jumper.
I am working a rib pattern k3, p3 with circular needles.
Body - cast on 156 sts is done.
Worked to 28cm then comes the bind off for armholes … So, I have to bind off 4 stitches at each side?? And then knit the pattern separately for front and back
I think I am struggling due not being familiar with circular needles - As this is the circumference of the whole jumper in the round.
I have attempted the 4 bind off at the begging of the row, knit to the end, turn and bind off 4 sts at start of next row, I end up with 148 sts, which is correct, but is it right that I do the first bind off with the whole of the 156 stitches in the round.
My understanding is that I bind off only at the beginning of a row so if I do this I have both ends with a bind off of 4 stitches. Which just doesn’t seem right?
Then if I ever get round to accomplishing that, for front section with 74 sts I have to bind off for armholes every other row: 2 sts 1 (2-2) times, 1st 1 (1-2) times = 68 sts
I am doing the small size jumper, not sure what “every other row, 2 sts, 1 st means” ???
Does this make any sense??
Maybe I am beyond help haha ,
