problem with a pattern
I started and it went fine for 16" then when it came to bind off for the shoulders, the pattern always gets out of sink. I bind off using the same stitches. The pattern is Boy or Girls EASY Vest off of Yarn Lover's Room. Is there anywhere I can go for help? I tried emailing them, but it wouldn't go thru.
I just lost my job, and have lots of time to knit.
I tried the long tail cast on and really like it MUCH better.
thanks for any help

Hi, and welcome. What part gets out of sync when you BO? Could you explain with a little more detail, and we can help you here.

problem with a pattern
the pattern starts with 69 sts/ goes k2 p2 ending w k1 turn and repeat the same thing. which i did for 16", then when I went to bo/ I bo/ following the pattern which was fine, bo 7 sts/ then turn (it was bo 7 beginning of ea row. but when i did the second row the ridges went off at an angle. i wrote the pattern out, so I thought i was following it, but every time (about 6/7 times) it went off at an angle. i just can't figure what I'm doing wrong.
thanks so much for answering..

So you have basic k2, p2 ribbing. After you BO continue the row in the rib st. Then when you get to the next row after the 2 with bound off stitches, you will have to knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts instead of starting with k2, p2. You would start with the 8th st (because you bound off 7) which is a p1, then go back to k2, p2.

I hope that's what you mean.

no, it's not ribbing, cuz it ends w k1 so when you start back k2p2 you are off center it's p1 k2 p2(you are looking at) but follow the same pattern across and ends in k1. that's the way the pattern is same every row. So when i bo/ i just followed the pattern, and the first row is ok, but coming back it gets off. Understandd?
pattern: k2p2 across ending in k1. turn k2p2 ending in k1. the k1 at the end makes it ofset but makes a pretty pattern, just goofs me up with binding off.

Okay, a broken rib pattern then. But you still start the rows after the BO row on what would be the 8th stitch (because you're missing the first 7) which should be p1, then do k2, p2 across until you run out of sts.
