This looks interesting. I am going to give this one a try the next time I bind off a scarf. I always find the bind off of my scarfs to be tighter than the cast on side. I love your tuts! The photos and instructions are always clear.


Very cool! I'm wondering if this would work for toe-up socks. I'm still searching for a bind-off that's loose enough and looks good, i.e., doesn't flare. Hmmm, experimentation may be in order. :-)


I will have to try that next time!


great tutorial - I know how much it takes to put these together.

I'll have to try this method- it looks like fun.. or maybe it's just cause you called him "fred" (grin) very clever.


Thanks for the tutorial. I'm going to have to give this a try!

My spatial orientation skills are abysmal, so I'm not sure, but I think that is a different way of doing the bindoff for Icarus. It seems less involved than the one I did, but I think binding off 500+ stitches probably always seems really involved.

Your pictures are incredibly clear - how do you manage that?

This is the bind off method I use all the time -- I didn't know there were others! It is amazing how much there is to learn in this craft.

Just so you know - you can still bind off too tightly with this method too. Trust me.


Thanks for a great tutorial. Many are very confusing, but not yours. Pictures and descriptions are very clear and concise.

how is this any different than the regular bind off? In the end, Fred does the same thing... I don't see the advantage, and I don't end up with a more elastic bind-off...


That looks a little like the 'cable cast-on'. now both sides of my work will look the same thanks.
