Video: Cable Bind-Off for Seed Stitch







This is a decorative bind-off that is based on the Cable Bind-Off for 1x1 Rib.

The technique makes the seed-stitch texture seem to continue into the bind-off row.

This is not a stretchy bind-off. Use it on the edge of a potholder or a dishcloth — anything where you don’t need the edge to stretch.




Instructions

Use a needle 1-2 sizes smaller in your R hand than the one you used to knit.

  1. 1st st is a purl st.
  2. K1.
  3. Move yarn to the front.
  4. Move st from R needle to L needle.
  5. P2tog.
  6. Move yarn to the back.
  7. Move st from R needle to L needle.
  8. K2tog.
  9. Repeat steps 3-8 across.
  10. Cut yarn and pull through last st.

Tips

Use a needle that is two sizes smaller than the one you used to knit the seed stitch. Seed stitch tends to pull in a little bit and you want to make sure that the bind-off does the same.
