Stretchy Bindoffs

This year I have been knitting a lot of shawls.  These lacy creations have made me need to learn a bunch of new techniques for casting on and binding off.  Some designs need a firm edge, but sometimes you need a really stretchy bindoff so you can block your lace edge our properly.  I created two videos on my favorite stretchy bindoff techniques.


The Surprisingly Stretchy Bindoff (Hey, I didn't name it!)

  1. Probably would be easier to see if the yarn was yellow or a lighter color.

    But will try to use this BO. Thank you!

    1. When I am making videos out of swatches I do try to use lighter colors. Both of these videos happened to come from actual shawls that I was making. I didn't consider that I wanted to film a tutorial until I was at the end, where it was too late to change the color. ;)

      I really appreciate the feedback!

  3. I am very particular with those stuffs used in garments and I found them very nice. You have very creative mind in making use of such a cool stuff out of yarn. That's a new sort of twist. Thanks for the video tutorial anyway!

    1. You're welcome! I have a pair of toe up socks where the bindoff is too tight. (The first time I cast off I couldn't even get them on my feet, so I ripped it out and tried again... and a little effort I can get them on.) I really wish I knew about stretchy bindoffs many years ago!
