Ok, Stupid question 312. I’m knitting a baby sweater and have been going great guns; but it’s been years since I’ve done anything like a sweater. The problem is the neck shaping. On the back the directions say to bind off 9 stitches, put the next 24 on a stitch holder then bind off the last 9 stitches. I know binding off, but what do I do with the working yarn at the end of the first bind off? Cut it? Carry it over to the last bind off?
Same problem with the neck shaping in the front. Move 9 stitches to holder; continue pattern for additional 2 inches. What happens to the working yarn? I just carried it over from the first stitch and continued the pattern. There’s enough yarn so that I can weave it in when I do the neck band, but I don’t think I did this the “right” way. Any suggestions?
