I'm knitting a baby sweater from Debbie Bliss' "Baby Knits for Beginners". I've made a few sweaters before, so I'm not completely clueless, but this instruction has me stumped:
Bind off 23 sts at beg of next 2 rows
Leave rem 37 sts on a holder
I've completed the back (bottom up in stockinette stitch) and then arrived at the above instruction.
It seems to me it would make more sense to bind off the first 23 sts then knit across the 37 and then bind off the last 23 sts on that same row, moving the 37 stitches in the middle to the holder. (There are 83 sts total in the row.)
Your thoughts would be warmly welcomed!
