i'm a beginner, attempting to knit a simple stockinette stich sweater for my baby. i'm stuck on these directions:
"Shape Shoulders: Cast off 8 sts at beg of next 2 rows and 8 sts at beg of foll 2 rows. Leave rem 24 sts on a holder."
does this mean i'm to bind of 8 stiches on each end of the piece, then 8 more on the inside after knitting a row? (as in, symmetrically?)
must be pretty simple, but i'd hate to make a mistake after completing the piece... please help!!
