Shoulder Seams
  binding shoulders off together

  We prefer to bind off the front and back shoulder seams together. To bind off, use a needle one size larger than used for the sweater body.

 
Shoulder Seams 1 Hold right (not wrong) sides of the front and back facing together.
Shoulder Seams 2 With the larger needle, knit into the first stitch of the front and back pieces at the same time.
Shoulder Seams 3 When you have 2 stitches
on the right-hand needle,
pick up the first stitch and...
Shoulder Seams 4 ...pass it over the other stitch.
Shoulder Seams 5 Continue to bind off this way, until all shoulder stitches on the front and back are attached. Repeat for the other shoulder.
