I’ve had a few questions about the bind offs in the pattern. If you’ve purchased a Bento Box from Jimmy Beans Wool, be sure to access the expanded version of the pattern via the link that comes with the purchase. It clears up these issues. If you are working from the card insert from one of the advertisements, you should interpret the first line of the pattern after the set up row as follows:
k2, slip the 1st stitch over the 2nd to bind off 1 st, k2….
You are binding off the first stitch of every row.
Please feel free to message me with any questions!
