I finally finished my Secret of the Stole II stole yesterday and was trying to find a good bind off technique that would allow more give in the blocking process than my traditional bind off method would. So, I went web surfing. There are so many out there to choose from. I decided to go with the following "stretchy bind off" that I found here. I chose option #4 which is amazingly simple and it goes like this:
*k2tog, pass stitch back to non-working needle*, repeat from * until no stitches remain.
Perhaps when things settle down here I can compile some of the other methods into a list for Knitwith.us. What method do you like to use for binding off your knitting projects? Does it vary depending on the item being created?
