When you’re ready to bind off, follow these steps on a Right Side row:
Step 1: Knit one stitch.
Step 2: Slip stitch purlwise from right needle to left needle, leaving right needle in the stitch.
Step 3: With right needle still going purlwise into the first stitch on left needle, work into the next stitch on the left needle knitwise.
Step 4: Knit the second stitch, pulling the new stitch through both stitches and drop both stitches off the needle.
Repeat Steps 2–4 until one stitch remains. The working yarn can be cut and drawn through this final stitch to fasten off.
I usually use a K2tog Through the Back Loops Bind Off for my shawls, but I’m definitely going to be using this bind off on my next lace project. I love how neat and tidy it looks while also providing stretch.
