Bind Off (Standard)

Congratulations on finishing your knitting project! Now it is time to bind off your stitches and admire your handiwork. I recommend this standard bind off for beginners. It is quick and easy and works well in most situations. Many lifelong knitters use this bind off exclusively. Of course, check out my other video lessons to explore more binding off options.

    What do you mean by break your yarn and pull it through the last stitch?

    Cut the yarn and thread it through the last stitch and pull tight to knot the end. Hope this helps!

    How do you get rid of the big loopy stitch at the end of the row when binding off? It doesn’t look neat and, I think, spoils the look of a nicely knit piece. Help!

    I pull the tail firmly through the last stitch while at the same time pushing down on this stitch with my left land to keep it as small as possible. (Hard to describe – I wish I could just show you!) You can tuck this stitch into your knitting when you weave in the tail. I’ve worked lots of magic “fudging” a little here and there.

    I’m trying to watch the video lesson for Bind Off in Pattern but not having any success.

    Please advise. Thank you.

    I’m sorry you are having problems with the video. It is working fine on my computer. Try refreshing the browser to see if that helps. Keep me posted – I want to stay on top of any issues!
