Hi–just started knitting again after a 30 year absence…I learned as a child. I had a great teacher and haven’t had problems till now–but I don’t know exactly what to do on the pattern at this point. Pattern directions say:
bind off 7 sts, work until there are 8 sts on RH needle (I’m good up to here), join another hank of yarn and bind off center 36 sts, work to end. Bind off 7 sts at beg of next 3 rows. AT THE SAME TIME, dec 1 st at each neck edge EVERY row once.
OK…join another hank of yarn? Does that mean I leave one hanging and knit through with the new one? I would assume so since there will be stitches on the needle that are separate due to the binding off in the middle. Also, I learned to add another hank by doing three stitches, which means the first hank will be three stitches away from the 8 stitches on the needle–does that make sense? Last (I think!), when decreasing 1 stitch at neck edge? Where exactly is that?! This pattern works from the bottom to the top.
Thanks for your help!
