The Edge of Knit with Candace Eisner Strick
You have to bind off anyway, right? So let's make a border at the same time! From sophisticated to funky, you can do two things at one time! Sample six border bind-offs: crochet picot, attached I-cord, applied lace, knit picot, I-cord fringe, and one more mysterious teaser!
_About 2 ounces of 2 colors each of #4 (worsted weight) wool yarn
_Appropriately sized needles (4, 4.5, 5mm/US 6, 7, or 8)
_One crochet hook the same size as needles
_2 double pointed needles the same size as other needles.
_Knitting Basics: Sharp scissors, Notebook, Pen or pencil with eraser, Stitch markers, Tapestry needles (large and small), Tape measure, Small calculator, Needles and crochet hooks of various sizes.
With worsted weight yarn cast on 20 sts; knit 3 rows (garter st). Leave sts on needle with yarn attached (wind off about 10 yards). Make 6 swatches.
