I am working on my first sweater, it is the Baby Poonam Sweater. I have finished the back and the majority of the front but am now at the neck, I have never done a neck before. The first row of the neck was done on the RS and had me work my first 30 sts as usual, add a second ball of yarn and bind off 20 sts, then work the last 30 sts as usual. That’s fine, I did that. What I’m not sure of is the next few rows. The directions are as follows:
[B]Working both sides at once, bind off 3 sts at each neck edge once, 2 sts once, and then dec one st at each neck edge every right side row once-24 sts each side. End on RS when left (button side) armhole measures 4 1/4" and end on RS of right shoulder when armhole measures 5".[/B]
So am I binding off the 3 sts on the wrong side (the next row) or do I do the WS without any bind offs and then bind of 3 sts on the next RS? When I do this I am working the row normally until the last 3 sts before the bound off sts and then binding those 3 sts off right? Then I’ll bind off the first 3 sts after the bound off sts and do the rest of the row normally?
