Hello! My name is Emma -- I'm currently working on the "3x chic" sweater from Knitty.com.
My question is about the directions for binding off at the shoulder (the right shoulder). I have 17 stitches on the needle. The directions say
"Bind off 6 sts at armhole edge twice.
Bind off 5 stis at armhole edge once."


What is the difference between this and just binding off all my 17 stitches? Am I supposed to bind off 6, finish knitting the row, the bind off when coming back in the other direction?


Thanks so much in advance! :) And i really enjoy reading all your posts!

This BO procedure gives the bind off edge more shape instead of just a straight line. In this particular pattern, I think this BO keeps the sweater from having a drop shoulder ... but I could be wrong :?

You got it. :) BO 6sts, finish the row. Now on the next row, you'll work the row in the established pattern and BO at the opposite end of the first BO row.

HAPPY KNITTING!
