Neaten up that bind off: final stitch fix

Does the final stitch of the bind off leave a big loop? Here is a simple trick to end that problem.

  1. Bind off to the last stitch on the L needle.
  2. Slip the last stitch from L needle to R needle.
  3. Locate the stitch below the last stitch.
  4. Pick up that stitch with the L needle tip.
  5. Slip the unworked stitch from the R needle back onto the L needle. There should be 2 sts on the L needle now.
  6. Knit the 2 sts together (K2tog). Cut yarn and pull through to fasten off.

Knit confidently!
