Is your last bind off stitch loose and wonky? Try this simple tip for a smooth and professional final bind off stitch.
Many knitters find a column of loose knit stitches on the left edge of their cables. This common phenomenon occurs in knitting when transitioning from a knit stitch to a purl stitch. To minimize the loose stitch, purl the first stitch after the knit column by wrapping the yarn clockwise around the needle. On the following row, this stitch will be twisted. Knit this stitch through the back loop to untwist it.
This great little technique can be used to add sections of color designs to stockinette. (It reminds me of cross stitching.) Many knitters use the Duplicate Stitch in lieu of small areas of Intarsia. These added stitches are placed on top of stockinette stitches after the piece is complete with the use of a tapestry needle. The Duplicate Stitch is also a great way to cover errors and wonky stitches you wish you had discovered prior to binding off. I especially love to use the Duplicate Stitch when weaving in ends on the right side of the work is needed.
