bind off 1 (1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2) sts at each side once;
bind off 3 sts at each side once;
bind off 4 sts at each side once;
bind off all remaining sts.
question? do i bind off 4 stitches at both the beginning and end of the same row? i tried this and the yarn is left in the wrong position to turn and continue knitting the remaining rows
What do you mean by the "wrong position to turn
If you bo 4 sts @ beginning at the beginning of the row, continue in pattern toward end of row, then bo the last 4 sts of the same row... the yarn has no choice but to be lined up for the next row. :? You would turn your work as you would to knit the next row as normal,. except you'd continue the decrease pattern.
Are you using circular needles by chance??
