I'm working on my first vest and I'm almost at the top of the back ready for bind off. But I was told instead of binding off the back, then the front and then sewing, that I was better off not binding just yet, and then doing a 3 needle bind off ofthe front and back together.
So here is my issue. I don't know how to alter the last bit of the pattern to accomodate this type of bind off
the patter is as follows
RS - bind off 5, k to end
WS - bind off 5, p to end
RS - bind off 4, k to end
WS - bind off 4, p to end
RS - bind off remaining 36 stitches.
I know that I have to do that last part since that is the neck, but the 9 stitches for the top of each sholder is what is getting me. Do I just knit/purl them without binding off placing a marker after the 4/5 stitches and skip them on the next row? Or do I just knit/purl them all the way through and simply bind off the 36 in the middle?
