I have a pattern for a sweater and I am about to knit the neckband and button band. I have never picked up and knitted bound off stitches before, but I am sure I can handle that once I watch a video. My question is about the number of stitches that it is telling me to pick up and knit. This is what the instructions say:
"pick up and k6 bound off sts from right front neck edge, 7 bound off sts from side neck edge, 10 sts up side neck edge, 16 sts across sleeve, 34 sts across back, 16 sts across sleeve, 10 sts from side neck, 7 bound off sts from side neck bind off, 6 bound off stitches from left front neck edge-112 sts."
I have more than this many stitches that span the area in which the neck band should be. I haven't counted them all, but I would estimate about 200. What does this mean to do, skip some? Is there a general rule about this which would help me to know which stitches to pick?
Thanks and God bless
