neck shaping

by Susan

I am knitting a sweater for Barbie and have a question regarding front neckline shaping. There are 21 stitches to start and you are supposed to knit first 6 stitches and then join another yarn to bind off 5 center stitches and then finish row. I am trying to figure out how to do this since I need 6 stitches on the other side to match. From my count there are 9 center stitches. The math does not add up. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you. Susan

Hi Susan,

That's interesting!

Are you sure there isn't any armhole bind off before this? If not then, it Looks like it need some adjustments.

I guess I would decrease the neck bind off to 7 sts instead of 9 and then move the extra 2 sts the left and right sides. all 3 sections would have 7 sts each.

How does that sounds to you?

Thanks for sending in the question.
