Basic Chain Bind Off Tutorial


When you have reached the end of your knitting project, you need to get the stitches to stay by fastening them by binding off, or casting off. The basic chain bind off is a good, simple bind off. It is often the very first bind off knitters learn because it is so simple. Be careful working your bind off, watching for tension and also to make sure it does not come out too tight.


Step 1 Knit the first stitch of your bind off row as you normally would. Knit each stitch a little looser than you normally would to avoid getting the tension too tight.














Knit the second stitch as you normally would. This next step is where the bind off technique comes into play. Remember to get the stitch a littler looser than your usual stitches.














Step 3 Insert the left tip needle back into the first stitch as shown in the picture. Following the direction of the arrow, pass the first stitch over the second stitch.














Step 4 Your knitting should look like the picture at left. You only have one stitch. Next, you will remove the left needle tip from the stitch, while tipping the right needle up and back to place the single stitch onto the right needle. This completes the first bind off stitch.













Step 5 It is now time to insert your right needle tip into the next stitch, repeating from step to through step 4 until you have bound off each stitch in your row.









When you reach the end of you row, you will have one knit stich, pass the yarn through it and pull. When you pull the yarn through the last stitch, it will tighten down like a knot. Leave a tail a couple of inches long to weave into your piece. You have finished your bind off!
