Trying to make a thin knit pull over shirt and I've never worked with this kind of material, or with this kind of pattern.

I know this is supposed to be easy, but I'm stuck!This is a easy sleeve less tunic with racer type arm openings. The neckline has a yoke. In back the yoke attatches at a sharp point. They ask you to pivot at the circle in the back to make that sharp point..but the circle is pretty low, and when I did that it all bunched up. I'm using very thin knit.
Also, it suggests that I use bias binding to finish off the sleeve openings, and the neck opening.
Can I use a coverstich machine to finish those edges, or do I need to finish with binding to keep it from stretch out?
How do I keep it from bunching up at the pivot point on the yoke?
I'd appreciate any help!

I have never been able to pivot successfully on a knit. I usually begin at the pivot point and sew one side, then begin again at the pivot point and sew the other.

Others may chime in with better methods, which I would appreciate knowing about, too!
