Bind Off Question for a project
Hey everyone,

I'm here again with yet another question. One day I hope to actually have some answers to give

I'm working on a pattern located HERE.

My question is how do I bind off? Do I complete row 26 then do a bind off, then sew the ends together to make a round? Probably a silly question but I don't want it to look funny.

Thanks for all your help!

Jessica

Row 26: Bind off 3 sts, K across row.

Well according to this patt I would thought you do exactly what it tells you to. Bind off the 3 sts on the 23nd row so it's making a diamond shape.

Well I've already done all 8 wedges but not sure how to actually END the project. (Does that make sense?)

I'm not sure on a quick glance, but I don't think you need to bind off at all. You just stop knitting, clip to leave about a ten inch tail, pull the tail up and out of the next stitch, then go onto the next wedge. When you sew the whole thing together, you go back and weave the tails in. All done!

Cute pattern.

Yes, after you do row 26, turn and start the next wedge from there, repeat rows 1-26.

My computer seems to be going really wonky. Anyway, so you don't even have to clip off, you just go on to the next wedge? Very clever!

Anyway, then I'd assume on the last one you just clip and pull the tail up and out, then weave it in.

It says to sew the edges together when you're done. I'd have to knit one up to see which edges they're talking about....

Thanks for all of your replies but I'm still a little confused.

One said to bind off after row 22 when I'm on row 23. But the rest seem to say to continue. When I complete row 26 (or any row) I still have at least 18 stitches on a needle.

After I do row 26 do I then go back and bind off those 18 stitches then sew the ends together with one of the tails?

Since it doesn't say anything about binding off and casting on for the next wedge, or to make 8 separate ones, I think after row 26, you go ahead and start row 1 again for the next one. Try that and see how it turns out, though this may be one of those patterns where it doesn't look like anything until you're completely done.
