A loose knitted bind off perfect for neck edges, scarves, afghans, or any round or curved edge. Leaves a crochet-like edge that makes for easy seaming.Video Rating: 4 / 5
excepcional, muchas gracias
I am not taking the first two stitches off of the needle but am holding the working yarn in the front or purl position. Not knowing the length of your tail, makes it hard to answer but this cast off uses a slight amount more of yarn. You may want to try the Bind Off in Pattern video to match your rib edge. Good luck!
I have two quick questions. One are you taking those first two stitches off the needle to get the thread to the front to purl for the bind off. And second I had done my rib bind off and it was too tight but I had cut the yarn. How much more yarn does this bind off take? I left a decent sized tail but don’t want to run out.
This is a fabulous way to bind off! The instructor is a very good instructor as well as she shows you over her shoulder and goes slowly rather than taping from the front and expecting people to reverse it in their minds. The lack of speed with which she demonstrates is very nice as well as most of us “visual learners” need to see it a few times and slowly each time. Nice nice nice all the way around!
This is now my favorite way to bind off. I just tried it on my project and it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. It’s not only loose, but it also gives a clean edge! I love it. Thank you for sharing it and teaching it so clearly!
This video is a relief for me because I find the usual standard bind-off is so tight and my start-off end of my project is usually larger than my finish-off end. I’ll try this technique.
lovelovelove this! Thaaankyou! I have been struggling for a way to bind off some wrist warmers leaving a loose enough finish without being too stretchy! This is just so perfect and I’ll use it over and over…
Very nice instructions! I loved the video of it it was so clear to me.
Not knowing your pattern, I definitely think it would be worth a try. Grandma would approve!
Hi, great clear video. I’m new to knitting. Would it be OK to use this on a V-neckline? I cast off already but it was tight I couldn’t get it over my son’s head! I’ve unpicked it and wondered if this would be OK or would it make the V-neck baggy as maybe it is only round necklines you use it with. Many thanks
Great video and clear instructions! Thank you so much!
My answer depends on what pattern the neckline is knit. For an all knit neckline I would use the sewn bind off and for a rib neckline I would use Grandma’s Favorite. I have never heard of the Italian bind off either!
which bind off method is better for a neckline knitted in round, sewn bind off or grandma’s favorite?? The pattern calls for Italian bind off but instructions were unclear to me and could not find any video on it. Thank you!
Did you wrap the yarn counterclockwise? It should be looser than the standard bind off. If you need stretchy, try my video on the Sewn Bind Off.
the video was great and easy to follow, but my bind off wasn’t any stretchier than a normal bindoff
Really helpful!! Thanks!
The perfect cast-off for a neck ribbing that threatened to be too tight. saved my project. Thanks!
Thanks for the helpful advice!
your video is great. i always bind off wayyyy too tight. this method will be great for my sweater
Thank you so much! This makes binding off my cowl so much easier and better!
Thanks for your kind words! Look for more videos in 2010. Thanks for watching!
you’re a very good teacher. Very clear instructions, nice voice and good video quality. Thanks for the help!
