(raglan sleeve) Pattern says bind off 3 at beg of next 2 rows. then there is row 1 and 2. then rep the last two rows until 25 stitches remain (does this mean you need to bind off again on those 2 rows.)
Yes, it does kinda look like you’ll need to bind off on the next two rows; HOWEVER, we might be able to help you better if we had a pattern name and/or link so we can read the directions in context. Plus, we like to see what folks are working on!
The Pattern is in Debbie Bliss The Baby Knits book, raglan sweater, pg 36. under shap raglan. Thanks
Welcome to KH!
Thanks for the pattern book and designer info. I think we’re going to need a quote of a few lines after the bind off for the sleeve. Not the whole pattern please, just those instructions at the start of the sleeve shaping.
Bind off 3 sts at beg of next 2 rows.
1st row K2, skpo, k to last 4 sts, k2tog, k2
2nd row P to end
Rep the last 2 rows until 25 sts rem.
What I need to know do I bind off 3 sts at beg of row 1&2 thru the entire rep or only once at the beginning?
This is a child’s sweater pattern
The instructions for the “next 2 rows” are done once. Repeat rows 1 & 2 only. You have a decrease at each end of row 1 (skpo & k2tog) which will decrease your stitch count by 2 each time you repeat the row.
Yes, bind off 3sts at the beginning of the next two rows (call them row a and row b), [I]then start rows 1 and 2[/I].
I just finished a baby blanket in a stitch similar to shaker rib. It does make a wonderfully squishable knit and should be great in a child’s sweater. Post a photo of the finished sweater if you’d like. We’d love to see it.
