Help! I’m knitting my first sweater for a baby. It has a collar that I add later and the pattern for the neck shaping states the following:
Working both sides at same time with separate balls of yarn, decrease 1 st at each neck edge every other row 3 times – 13 (15, 17) sts each side.
Then later in the pattern I have to pick up the neck to add the collar:
With right side facing and smaller circular needle, join yarn at right shoulder and pick up and k23 sts across Back neck, 10 (12, 14) sts down left front neck edge, 17 sts from Front neck stitch holder and 10 (12, 14) sts up right neck edge – 60 (64, 68) sts.
I’ve managed to get to the point where I’m working two balls of yarn around the neck and think I understand that but what I can’t figure out is whether given the downstream instructions whether the decrease at the sides of the neck should be a bind off, k2tog, ???
Any help is greatly appreciated! Full pattern with picture is here:
