Stretchy Bind Off

You can achieve a looser bind-off by using a stretchy form of bind-off—in this version, each stitch is knit more than once, resulting in a nonbinding edge.

2 Place these 2 stitches back on the left needle without twisting, and k2tog, k1.

3 Repeat Step 2 to the end. When only 2 stitches remain on the left needle, k2tog and cut yarn. Pass the cut end of the yarn through the loop to finish.



Use a larger needle to bind off with, one or two sizes larger than your working needle, to make sure your bind off is loose enough.
