New favorite bind off:

I first encountered this bind off in Cat Bordhi’s Insouciant Sock book. Since then,  I’ve suggested it several times for anywhere a stretchy bind off is desired. I’m posting the link here so I don’t have to go searching for my book every tine I want to use it.  Have you tried it? What do you think? Is there another bind of you love?

  1. Hi Lea-Ann, I used this bind off for my second smooshy socks. I first saw it on the Up with Toes! thread for toe up socks and I thought I would try it out. Wow! It really is stretchy. I found it very easy to use and I did not have the perfect candidate, I think it suggests using with a 1 X 1 ribbing, but I think I had a 2 X 2 ribbing and it worked just fine. I just checked my notes on that project and I need to remember to make sure I do this bind off loosely. I also think I saw a you-tube video of Cat demonstating this bind off, which did help also. So do you think it can be used for things other than socks or would that be too much?
