Video: Braided Rib Bind-Off
This is a very easy bind-off.
It's fast and firm and it does not roll, especially if you block it.
The thick braid gives it a simple but decorative look. It would be really nice on the edge of something like a potholder or a dishcloth where you don't need a stretchy edge and you’d prefer the bind-off to lay flat.
- Hold a second strand of yarn with your working yarn. Leave a 6-inch tail hanging down.
- BO 1.
- Repeat steps 3-4 across.
- Cut yarn and pull through last st.

To do this bind-off, you will need an extra strand of yarn that's about three times the width of the stitches to be bound off.
You can use the yarn from the other end of the ball for this purpose if you want. All this bind-off is is basically a purled Standard Bind-Off using a double strand of yarn.
