Help for a Brit knitting in American!
Hello from snowy Britain.
I downloaded a free pattern, for a coat. It is gorgeous and I've managed to understand all the different terms: ie your bind off is our cast off.
I'm half way up the back and should soon be decreasing for the arm holes, this is where I've hit a snag. The instructions for the back arm hole decrease are ... bind off 3 sts twice For the rest of the arm hole decrease rows it says, as we do over here, decrease one st at each end of following alternate rows.
I'm assuming that bind off twice is maybe written like this to save space? And means bind off at each end of the row?
Can anyone help clear the fog for this dumb Brit?
