What Is Binding Off?


Binding off is done at the end of a project to get the live stitches off your needles and keep them from unraveling so you can wear and enjoy your project.

At its most basic, it is a horizontal chain of stitches going along the top of your knitting. At its most complex, it can be an invisibly-sewn edge that seems to disappear into your ribbed, lace, or garter-stitch project.

You'll bind off any time that your pattern says "bind off" (BO). This is mostly at the end of your project, but it can be in the middle if your pattern has an unusual shape.

Sometimes the pattern will give you a specific bind-off to use, like "Bind off using Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off." Sometimes it will only suggest a general category, for example, “Bind off using a stretchy bind-off.” 99.99% of patterns out there just say, "Bind off," and some don't even tell you that.

Whether or not your pattern gives you specific suggestions, it's always up to you to choose the right bind-off so that your project comes out the way you like.

  • Seam up sock toes and sweater shoulders easily and invisibly

What KnitFreedom Students Have to Say About This Bind-Offs Knitting Class:

“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

This Bind-Offs guide makes it possible to find the perfect bind-off for any project & to approach the end of a project with confidence.

So Clear and Simple

Thank you for this wonderful Invisible Ribbed Bind-Off video!! I had to bind-off a 1×1 rib and it looked awful. I poked around and looked at dozens of tutorials for this bindoff, and even another video tutorial, and was starting to despair a little. You made it SO clear and simple, and I did it and it looks great. I put it in a post on my blog. Thanks again!

– Lori


Better Than 4 Bottles of Tylenol

For less than the price of 4 bottles of extra strength Tylenol I just treated myself to the bundled package deal on Cast Ons and Bind Offs. Thank you SO much, Liat, for really thinking these tutorials through and covering all the bases so meticulously.

Truly, the cast on and the bind off are crucial points in every project, no matter how much you spend on gorgeous yarn and no matter how well you execute the rest of an intricate pattern. Casting on and binding off are like launching and landing an aircraft--- ALL important and the difference between success and failure, life or death and 4 bottles of Tylenol and hysterics or a cuppa'n'cruller to celebrate!

So Easy to Find a Beautiful Cast-Off

I purchased your "I Love Bind Offs" to have as a resource. When I first received the course I skimmed over it to see what it was like and to know what might help me in the future. Well, that day came today! I have been working on a short swing jacket/sweater that has some seed stitch. The collar is done completely in seed stitch.

As I began to bind it off as the pattern instructed I was not pleased with the way it was finishing off. I thought, "I bet Liat has a bind off that will work better!". I wondered how easy it would be for me to find just the right bind off for my project. It was sooo easy.

I scanned the table of contents and there it was "Bind-offs for Seed St." I read the two ways recommended. The first was just what my pattern had instructed. But the second, "Cable bind-off for seed stitch" was just what I was hoping for.

After taking out my work I first tried 1 needle size smaller--it still looked a little sloppy. I went down another needle size, just like you had said I might need to do, and voila--a beautiful cast off for my color. I'm so happy with it.

About This Class

I created this course in 2014 as a curated video library of only the best and most useful bind-off techniques.

Pile of Bind-Offs brightly coloredBefore working on this book, there were bind-offs that I didn’t even try because they seemed so complicated that they weren’t worth learning. In knitting over 200 bind-off swatches for this course, I was surprised to find that, in almost every situation, there is a better bind-off than the one I’d been using for my projects. And I’m a professional!

Because I persisted in knitting ALL the bind-offs and not just the “likely” candidates, I learned that many of those bind-offs aren’t as complicated as they seem at first glance – Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off is one example.

I also found that if they are more complex, they are often worth learning anyway, because they create a better final project. The Tulips Buttonhole is a great example of a vastly more complex technique that is still totally worth doing.

If the techniques were truly more complicated and NOT better than the other, easier, bind-offs? Well, I found that out too, and I rejected them faster than you can say, “Invisible Ribbed Bind-Off.”

200 Bind-Offs: Pile-up animationTo decide which bind-off tutorials to include, I got out all of my finishing books and started knitting swatches for each technique. I read what other people said the technique would be good for and then I worked it again, this time deciding for myself.

Then I worked it again, taking notes on not only how to do the bind-off and what my students should watch out for, but also how to explain it better in the first place. I knitted long strips of Stockinette, Garter stitch, and ribbing, and worked the bind-offs down the rows again and again while deciding whether to include them in the e-book.

As I continued this process for all of the different techniques, eventually I realized that I was coming up to – and surpassing – 200 bind-off swatches!

Each bind-off had to pass the following test to make it into this course:

  • “Did I have fun doing this technique?”
  • “Would learning this help me learn a more difficult bind-off later?”
  • “Is this better than anything else I’ve come across?”

I only included the very best of everything.

The result: A clear, easy-to-follow video guide to the top 45 bind-offs you will use and love.

Materials Needed

To learn the cast-ons in this course, all you need is some scrap yarn and a matching pair of needles.

I show all the techniques with bulky-weight yarn and US size 9 or 10½ needles, but you may have an easier time using worsted-weight yarn and US size 7 (4.5 mm) needles.
