Stretchy Picot Bind Off

Toe up socks require a bind off that is both stretchy and firm.  It needs to be stretchy to fit over the foot and yet firm enough to stay up on your leg.  The Stretchy Picot Bind Off meets these requirements while adding a darling ruffled and crochet-like edge to the cuff of your sock.  This bind off also adds a sweet touch to sleeve cuffs and necklines or wherever a touch of whimsy is desired.

As with many knitting techniques the written instructions can seem daunting, but follow along with this simple video and you will be adding a unique signature to your next sock or garment.

    Thank you for posting this video! I used this bindoff at the top edge of a shawl, and it worked perfectly, giving me enough stretch to block aggressively.

    I’m so glad you found a nice bind off to complement your shawl!
