Video - How to Work a Knitted Bind Off

Today's free pattern Lilla is a versatile worsted weight shawl worked from the top down in stockinette stitch with a knitted-on lace edging. A knitted-on edging works as both an edging and a bind off. We love this technique for creating a stretchable decorative bind off on patterns like Oleander, Anastasia, and Lucerne. To begin the bind off, you will cast on the stitches for the edging onto a double-pointed needle. Work the first RS row, stopping one stitch before the end of the row, then decrease the two stitches together. Describing the technique in words is tricky. To really get the hang of this technique, follow along with today's how-to video.
