Help with shoulder plackeet

Hey everyone…I am doing the Hailey sweater and cannot for the life of me visualize the shoulder placket. Can someone help me please? I want to bind off using the 3 needle as much as I can, but can I do that with the one shoulder, or do I need to follow the BO instructions as written?


From a quick look, you can do the right shoulder with the three-needle bind off, no problem. The left shoulder has the buttoned placket, and you probably should include that since the neck may not be big enough for a child’s head without it.

Just put the right shoulder stitches on a holder until both right shoulders are done and then bind them off instead of sewing them together.

THanks so much Ingrid!! I will just trust the pattern, like your wisdom says!!
