Shaping armholes of the summer tank.
I am working on my first, simple summer tank
and I have a question.

To shape the armholes, the instruction says,
Bind off 3(4-5-7)sts at beg of the next 4 rows, then
3(4-6-7) sts at beg of the next rows.

OK, I am knitting the back.
bind 3 sts and this is the right side of armhole, right?
then I thought, to make left side of the armhole???

Instruction does not say anything about binding of last
3 sts, but am I supposed to do that??

I'm confused.
Please help!

Niki

You can't bind off at the end of a row, that's why the pattern says `BO at beginning of next 4 rows'. Don't worry that it'll be one row off; when you're done it's not noticeable.

Hi, Sue, thank goodness you are here!!

I got it!
I actually tried to bind off at the END of the row
and I was seriously wondering how the heck
everyone pulls this one off!

I've checked Amy's video of Purl bind off and
I think I'm OK for now.

Thanks again!!

Niki

Same tank, and now shaping shoulders
I'm still working on same summer tank.
Now I finally reached the part of shaping shoulders.

Instruction says, bind off 4 sts at each armhole adge twice, then bind off 3(4-5-5) sts once.

Is this mean shoulders are sort of leaning one side?
I don't have really clear idea.
I was thinking the shoulders are straight line.

Please advice!

Thank you

Niki

How many stitches do you have total? It may be that after you BO 4 sts at each edge, there's only 3 left. Shoulders are sometimes slanted a little.

Hi, Suzeeq!!

According to the original instruction, there are 11(12-13-13) sts
each side of shoulder.
But I modified a little and I have 12 each.
Should I BO 4 sts twice and 4sts again? That makes 12 sts.

Another thing I was wondering was
after I BO 4 sts (first row), I Knit right?? then purl till I get to the last xx sts.
I'm confused

Sure, you can do 4, 4, and 4. BO 4, then knit across. Turn and purl across. Turn, BO 4, knit across, then turn and BO the last 4 sts. You BO only at the armhole edge.
