Usually you pull out the spare yarn and put the live sts on a needle.
Ok i have been able to move forward. Now the pattern says
Row 10: BO 10sts (1 st on right-hand needle)
Is this a standard bind off? What does the instruction in the bracket mean? Do I slip the first stitch to the right hand needl?
