i’m knitting for the first time a baby Jacket. I am right now at Neck shaping and it’s confusing for me. I’ll post the patter from the body on so you can see what i mean. It says nothing when i should bind off, or where. I also don’t understand how to do that with the Neck shaping and the Neckband. Can any one please help me with this? I got so far and don’t wanna unraffel everything, just because i don’t understand the rest of te pattern.
Body (worked in one piece to armholes)
CO 98 sts. Work 4 rows in garter stitch.
Keeping first and last 4 stitches in garter stitch, work Rows 1-8 of Pattern Stitch 5 times, eliminating beginning and ending sts and working only the sts from the *.
Divide for armholes as follows:
You may change to a different color here or use the same color.
K23, BO 4 sts, k44, BO 4 sts, k23
Next row: Purl back, placing sleeve sts from holder on needle and placing markers at beginning and end of each sleeve.
Work 4 rows garter stitch.
Next row: Make a buttonhole on garter band and begin armhole decreases as follows:
knit to within 2 stitches of next marker, k2tog through back loop, slip marker, k2tog. Repeat across row.
Next row: purl
Repeat these last 2 rows 6 more times.
Continuing armhole decreases, place first 4 sts of next 2 rows on holders, then decrease 1 st each end every other row 2 times.
After 12 armhole decreases total have been worked, place remaining stitches on a holder.
Pick up 50 or 51 sts including stitches on holders.
Keeping the first and last 4 in garter stitch make another buttonhole and work about an inch of ribbing.
Sew sleeve seam and underarm. Sew on buttons. Weave in ends on WS
