Hi! I am knitting my daughter a sweater from a pattern that came with Caron’s Simply Soft yarn. The pattern is for a Baby Caftan Sweater. I love this yarn and the pattern is easy but I have a question about one part where it says to bind off.
Once I get to the neck and placket shaping I had to bind off the center 6 st and join a second skein to begin knitting both sides of the neck at the same time. This part I did. Then it says:
Shape neck and shoulders: (RS) At each neck edge, BO 2 sts once, then dec 1 st every other row 5 times until 12 rem on each shoulder.
How can I BO at the end of the row? I can’t knit the first sts and then BO before I reach the middle where the neck edge is. I can BO on the other side of the neck edge because it’s the start of that side shoulder. Should I k2tog twice or SSK twice at the first part to dec the 2 sts?
