CPH - Short row shaping on fronts? Yet another question
Artlady, thank you for your reply. You are right. I did put my stitches from the back onto holders, so they are waiting now for me to finish the front. (I have 21 sts for each shoulder waiting)

My question that I still have, though, is where do I begin (or do I need to do) the short row shaping on the fronts to match what I did on the back? I have worked the pattern for the fronts to this point and am down to 21 sts, which matches what I have for the shoulders on the back. But I am at the part where the pattern says "Shoulder Shaping" and it tells me to BO 7 sts at the beginning of the next 3 RS rows, then 0 sts at the beg of next RS row, so that no stitches remain on the needle. But, since I am going to want to do the 3 needle bind off, I will not want to BO those stitches, right? Do I have to do some short row shaping as I work through those rows, or do I not need to do any short row shaping, and just knit straight up in stockinette for those rows?

Again, thanks for all of your help!
