I’m working on the pattern from hell, and am about to start the neckline shaping. It’s a crewneck sweater, and I can’t wrap my head around the bind offs. The instructions read:
When work measures…bind off 25 centre sts for neck (that’s easy).
At neck edge, bind off every alt row 4 sts at once and 3 sts at once. At the same time, bind off for shoulder on every other row 6 sts twice and 7 sts once.
Wouldn’t binding off so many sts at once look weird? I’m not sure I understand. for “bind off every alt row 4 sts at once” does that mean 2 on one side and 2 on the other? Am I making it worse?
The pattern doesn’t even tell you how many sts should be remaining on your needle. I currently have 77 sts before starting the neckline.
Any help you can offer would be much appreciated! Thank you!
