New to knittinghelp, new to knitting
Hello all,
Well, I'm trying to teach myself to knit. Armed with a couple of books and all of my grandmother's knitting paraphenelia, I made a couple of charity bears and a pillow for my son. I got a bit confident and started the "Little Black Top" from Stitch 'n Bitch.

I'm on the back, up to the the armhole shaping. The next row says to BO 5 sts at beg of next 2 rows. So the question is: Why not BO 5 sts at the end as well? Won't it make it uneven, or am I missing something? I totally get that I have to BO, because I'm starting the armhole on the left side of my body, but what about the right side?

Please be gentle, this is the first time I'm working from a real pattern. And, thank you all in advance for your expertise.

Happy Knitting!
