Seamless bind-off in the round


Posted on March 12, 2012

Sometimes it’s the little details that take a project from good to great. Here’s one of my favorites: making the end of your bind-off join seamlessly with the beginning when you’re binding off in the round, such as around a sock cuff or sleeve.

This technique works equally well for knitting or crochet—any bind-off that results in a ring of V-like stitches around the finished edge.

I also use a similar principle to try to hide the join in my cast-ons—using a tapestry needle and my yarn tail to join the beginning to the end “in pattern”—but it doesn’t always work as seamlessly for the cast-on as it does for the bind-off.

The mitts shown in the video are Flecktone and Fetching.
