If a knitting pattern said:  "at each neck edge bind off 3 sts 2 times and 1 st 2 times"

 

does it mean to bind off 3 stitches at a time 2 times?  I have always binded (bound? LOL) off one stitch at a time, so wanted to make sure first

 

Thanks!

no you are still binding off 1 stitch at a time...do it three times...knit remainder of row, turn, bind off three stitches from that side - knit to end of the row.....again bind of three stitches - knit to end of row, turn   bind off 3 stitches, knit to end of row turn

then bind off only ONE stitch  knit to end of row, turn...bind off first stitch - knit to end of row - do that once more

i hope that makes sense!
