Binding Off
Hello everyone
Im making a sweater and am currently working on the back. I have worked up to the armholes and the pattern says to bind off 4 stitches at the beginning and the end of every 8th row. I know how to bind off at the beginning but how do you bind off the 4 stitches at the end.
Thanks
Desperately waiting an answer

You don't BO on the end. Work to the end, turn and BO at the beginning of the next row. Thus, some BOs will be on the RS, some on the WS.

Cam is right. I've never seen a pattern that told you to bind off at the beginning and end of a row. Weird.

A lot of translated patterns come out as `BO on both sides of the row" or something, so it can be misinterpreted as beg and end.
