Bind Off – in middle of work

Binding off the last row is simple, but binding off at the ends of a row (armholes, lace points) or in the middle of a row (necklines, buttonholes) is handled differently.  Watch this video to learn to properly count your stitches and expertly shape garments.

  1. Exactly.
    It’s one of those things you have to actually do so you can see what’s going on. You end up knitting with two balls of working yarn.
    Thank you!

  2. Your pattern want you to attach the new yarn to bind off so that it can be used on the other side of the neck. I’m guessing they want you to work both sides of the neck at the same time.

  3. Thank you for this video. But I still have a question! When I get to the neck of the sweater I’m knitting, the pattern says: RS k26 sts, ATTACH YARN AND bind off 20 sts, K to end of row. What do they mean by ‘attach yarn and BO’?
    Could I just follow your instructions for binding off in the middle of a row?
    Thank you!
