You bind off the shoulder stitches, knit the rest of the row. Turn your work and bind off the shoulder stitches on the purl side finish the row.

I finished the back:


Thank you all for the ideas on the bind off! In the end, I used short rows, which I think went best with the lace pattern. See this thread for details.

I'll have to wait till Saturday before I can start on the front. I'm really looking forward to seeing this come together.

Front is done on one side, I need to do the left now...



But I first have to make up my mind about the best way to pick up the stitches. I still have a lifeline running through that part, I wonder whether I could use that...

I saw your question in another thread, and the reply. I wonder if you could could cast on the required number of stitches and after knitting that portion stitch it in place at the back. I think it would show less than picking up stitches. Of course, picking them up in front and reversing the overlap would work too and I think salmonmac suggested that. If you pick up stitches in the back could you do it in the very top row of the band below the lace portion?

I did go for picking up the stitches at the back, through the loops of the purled row:


It is a bit contracted, but I hope that will even out (might have to block it, will that help?). I didn't think that any of the other methods (brilliant as they might be! Really good suggestions) would look better and now we'll never know...

It is unpractical to knit with the right front hanging by, so I made a roll out of it

Update:
I finished this garnment at the beginning of October and have worn it a couple times since.

It turned out to be easy to put together due to the slipped stitches. The seam on the shoulders is a bit thick though: I really don't see how I can sew it together so the sew becomes another row; I just have to draw both sides tightly together to make it look right... the seam does prevent the garnment from stretching too much

It fits quite well. The front part is a bit bulky though: If I ever were to knit this again, I'd stretch the "crossover" over more stitches... I think... though I'm not sure that would give me a better result...

I'll post a picture when I've got my camera
