My brain is fried and I'm not thinking well at the moment.
When you are told by a pattern to 'bind off in pattern' are they limiting that to the type of stitch in the pattern (knit vs purl) or does that include things such as cables? For example, you are supposed to bind off on a right side row. All of my right side rows are cable rows. So if I am binding off in pattern, do I need to be working the cables too?
