Taking the 'Bind' Out of Binding Off with Sarah Peasley
Does your pullover get stuck on your big noggin? Why won't that circular shawl lie flat? Is a too-tight hatband cutting off the circulation to your brain? Can't get your toe-up sock over your heel? Traditional bind-offs are often too rigid and can be downright uncomfortable. Loosen up with a variety of elastic bind-off techniques that will turn your castoffs into comfy, wearable garments. Tubular, sewn, and grafted bind-offs will be included.

4.5mm/US 7 straight or circular needles; 4mm/US G crochet hook; 50 gms smooth, light-colored #4 (worsted-weight) yarn; 25 gms smooth, contrasting-colored #4 (worsted-weight) yarn; blunt tapestry needle; scissors
