Tuesday Tip: Extra Stretchy Bind Off
Last fall I ran a knitalong with Creative Knitting for my Fan the Flames Cowl. Since you know, I’m gonna pack it full of tips and tricks that aren’t on the page, I thought I’d share some of my favorites here.
The words “bind off loosely” can cause much frustration to knitters. A stitch is wider than it is tall, so OF COURSE, when it lies down on it’s side for a bind off, it can’t possibly reach the next stitch. It needs a little help
With a lace edge that moves, this is even more important. We covered in a previous Tuesday Tip on the elastic cast on, now it’s time to end our project well.
