Hi, all, I’m new and of course need to ask a question. I’m knitting a sweater from a pattern I found on the Lion Brand website. The link to the pattern is http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/khs-stripedYokePullover.html
My question is at the beginning of the Neck Shaping. Here is what the pattern says:
“Keeping in pattern, knit 15 stitches. Join second strand of yarn and bind off next 14 stiches. Knit to end. Working both sides at once, work even in pattern until back measures 15 inches from beginning. Bind off.”
What on earth does it mean by “join second strand of yarn”? What yarn? Join where? How? I am just completely confused by that statement!
And secondly, what does “working both sides at once” mean?
And finally! What type of bind off do you recommend? I’ve only done the “pass stitch over” bind off, but it always seems to end up too tight. Is that just because I’m knitting tightly (which I’m learning to loosen up lately…) or it is the nature of that bind off?
Thank you so much for any help.
