Hi. Hope someone can help me with the Little Lace Points section of this sweater--Directions state to bind off using this edging, however, it seems to me that the body of the sweater already needs to be bound off in order to pick up the edge stitches and proceed as specified in little lace points pattern. Can someone clarify? Thanks!

Hi Vickie
No, you do not bind off and pick up stitches separately.

Keep all of your live stitches from the garment on the left hand needle. Then when you knit the edging inwards from the outside edge, you join the last stitch of the edging to the next live stitch on the left hand needle - knit 2 together through back of loops.
Just remember, you are knitting the edging at right angles to the garment.

When I attach lace edging in this way I usually slip the first stitch on the return row. The pattern does not say to do this, but if you find it doesn't lie flat, try slip 1.
