Every single time you're binding off in the round, use this trick to make the join completely disappear. No one will be able to tell where you started and where you stopped! This is one of those tips that I know is going to change my knitting forever, and what is amazing to me is that I had never learned either this tip or last week's tip in all my years of working at a yarn shop and teaching classes and being in the knitting industry.
Since many of you have told me you longed for a fix for this very problem, you can imagine how overjoyed I was to find this little gem while researching for my upcoming bind-offs ebook. It's hard to come across stuff like this -- where one small tip makes a big difference in your knitting -- especially if you've been knitting for a long time.
I'm excited because I am now able to teach this to you, dear reader, and I hope that you teach it to everybody else that you know -- all your knitting friends -- because it's just fun!
Go to this post to see the video, step-by-step photo instructions, and an animated demo. Enjoy learning this new technique using whatever style of instructions suits you best: http://knitfreedom.com/bind-offs/neat...
Step by Step Instructions: 1. Bind off all sts. 1 st rem on R needle. 2. Pull the needle so the loop gets bigger -- about 8″ long. 3. Cut yarn at the top of the loop. 4. Pull the ball of yarn so the working yarn comes out of the stitch. 5. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle. 6. Find the 1st bound-off stitch. 7. Go in under the 2 loops of the stitch and pull the yarn through. 8. Find the center of the last bound-off stitch. 9. Poke the needle through and to the back. Pull yarn to tension. 10. Weave in tail on the WS. 11. There's a "fake" stitch joining the first and last stitches. Invisible!
This Trick Is Part Of The Upcoming KnitFreedom Video Guide of Bind-Offs, called... **I Love Bind-Offs**
Coming on March 1st 2014! It's going to be awesome.
