Alot of times, you wont know what the heck you are doing till you actually are doing it. Then comes the "AH-HA" moment. ( i LOVE those!!)


Following Row: Bind off 4 sts, work to end – 19(22-25-28-30-33) sts. Bind off 2(3-4-4-5-6) sts at armhole edge once, 0(2-2-3-3-3) sts once, then dec 1 st at armhole edge same as back every RS row twice. AT THE SAME TIME, bind off 3 sts at neck edge once, 2 sts once, then dec 1 st at neck edge every RS row 6 times. When all decs have been completed, work even on 4(4-6-8-9-11) sts until armhole measures 7 1/2(7 1/2-8-8 1/2-9-9)”, end on WS. Bind off.

Note for Back Armholes: When decreasing 1 st at beg and end of RS rows, k2, SSK, k to last 4 sts, k2 tog, k2.


DISCLAIMER: I dont actually have this in my hands working it so its a bit hard to see what is going on here but .....

here it is row by row in my humble opinion......

(RS)Bind off 4 st, k to the end.
(WS)bind off 3 st, p to the end.
(RS)Bind off 2 st, k to the end.
(WS)Bind off 2 st, p to the end.

I hope this helps.

Thank you so much!!!! That helps me so much. I might have bitten off more than I needed to attempt to chew, but I have always been that type of person.
