im learning to knit on circular needles. im minutes away from finishing this project… and i dont quite understand the pattern.
i am about to bind off the top of the dress and leave 2 x 4 stitch straps.
this is what the directions say…
bind off 4 sts, k until 4 sts from bind off, bind off 8 sts, k until 4 sts from bind off, bind off to end—two 4-st straps remain.
i dont quite get this. im sure i am supposed to be putting sts on a holder or something.
or should i read this as:
bind off 4 sts
knit until 4 sts from bind off,
LEAVE those 4 sts alone? or knit those 4 sts?
and THEN off 8 sts
knit until 4 sts from bind off
KNIT those or LEAVE those
then bind off to end
i hope you understand this question.
