The Double Chain Bind Off is a bind off that creates both function and decoration in the finishing of your knitting project. Try this bind off on your next shawl project, for a stretchy and beautiful detail to the bottom of your top-down shawl. In this video, shawl designer Jen Lucas explains how to work the Double Chain Bind Off.

The Double Chain Bind Off is worked as follows:
Step 1: P1, wrapping the yarn clockwise around the needle (the opposite direction from the way you usually wrap the yarn)

Step 2: *Yarn over, purl next stitch wrapping the yarn clockwise around the needle, pass yarn over over the stitch just made, then pass the first purl stitch over the stitch just made; repeat from * to end.

Once you reach the end of the row, cut the yarn, leaving a tail that is long enough to weave in later. Thread the tail through the last stitch and pull it tightly to secure.

The double chain bind off creates a lovely edge that resembles a row of interlocking chains. It’s a versatile technique that can be used in various knitting projects. Remember to practice and take your time to achieve neat and even results. Happy knitting!
