Binding Off

Binding off a project is a piece of cake compared to casting on! Simply work two stitches in the established pattern. After you have the two stitches on the right needle, insert the left needle into the first stitch on the far right. Lift up this stitch up and over the second stitch.

Drop the stitch that you have lifted completely off of the right needle. You now have only one stitch on the right needle. Work another stitch in pattern and then repeat the lifting and dropping off instructions. Keep doing this until you are down to one stitch. When you have one stitch left, cut the yarn leaving a six inch tail and pull the tail through the last stitch.
