raglan question revisited

not to belabor the question, but I'm having trouble with the raglan decrease instructions for the back in size #4 after the first set of bind off stitches

sz4) Bind off one stitch every other row 34 times (34 bound off over 68 rows).

if they bind off is to be symmetrical and one st on each side as you go along, am I binding off/decreasing 68 stitches over 68 rows, rather than 34 stitches? or is it to bind off/dec one stitch on each side every 4th row for a total of 34 stitches decreased over 68 rows?

sorry for the confusion, I just don't want to feel like the incredible hulk, ready to burst from the seams of my lovely colchique!

you'll actually be binding off 68 stitches over 68 rows. 34 stitches every other row is for *each* side (this is how the french write their patterns, it seems), but this really means you'll be binding off one stitch every row.

that's right, everyone, isn't it?
