Something New

When it came time to bind off the end of the sock tube I decided to have a look on YouTube for a loose bind off. I’ve tried quite a few and many seem to cause the ribbing to flare. I found Sheena’s Stretchy Sock Bind Off and I’m happy to say it was both easy to do and barely flares at all. I will use this bind off again. It works really well with 2X2 ribbing.

  5. I don’t mind a bind off that flares – it doesn’t show once on my leg – but I’m always looking for a better trick, and I’ll have to try this! Thanks for including the link.

    I may have seen this stretchy BO before but not by her. Doesn’t Elizabeth Zimmerman have one like this or maybe Cat Bordhi as well.
