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.

  1. I recommend binding off in the color you used in the final row. Cut the unused yarn and weave it in on the wrong side. I have a great video to help you weave in ends in garter stitch.

  2. I am working on a garter & slip stitch blanket. It has 2 colors. The color not in use is carried up the side. I have finished the blanket and it tells me to cast off knitwise.

    Do I bind off with both colors?

  3. 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!

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

    Please advise. Thank you.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!
