I'm in the final section of an amazing shawl, where you bind off four stitches every other row to finish it off. The directions say p2tog, BO3. I took that to mean p2tog, then BO the next three stitches, leaving the p2tog on the needles.
That is obviously incorrect. It is far too tight. The p2tog is supposed to be one of the three bound off stitches, apparently. Oops!
