binding off on both edges of placket
Making a baby caftan. Front includes 6 bound off stitches, and then separately continuing both sides of the front, i.e. leaving a space in middle. After a few rows of working each side separately, instructions state to shape neck: "At each neck edge, bind off 2 sts once, then dec 1 st every other row 5 times." here's the question. when I am working towards the gap in the middle and bind off 2 stitches, I am left with the final stitch sitting at the end of the bind off, positioned next to the gap. It looks wrong. On the other side of the gap it looks just fine, since the bind off flows nicely into the remaining stitches to be knit on the row. what should i be doing on the bind off that precedes the gap. I have used the normal bindoff where you pass the 2nd knit stictch over the first.
