Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off

by Daniel Mackay February 27, 2014 1 min read

This is one of my favourite ways to finish any edge where stretch is important – shawls, sweater necks, toe up socks, etc. The Knitty article is an excellent tutorial, although when I reviewed it I discovered that I break the steps down a little differently. We made a video for the Follow Your Arrow kal that you might find helpful if you prefer video tutorials or want to see how I do it. The best part about this bind off is that it’s one of the simplest stretchy methods, it truly is a surprise. No darning needles or weird stitch manipulations necessary – although I do love a nice sewn tubular bind off!

How do you like to finish edges that need to streeeeeeeettttttttttttttccccccccccchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh?
