Video: Decrease Bind-Off

Characteristics: has matching cast-on
Difficulty: Easy

This is an easy, medium speed bind-off. It's about as stretchy as or a little stretchier than the Standard Bind-Off.

One benefit to this bind-off is that it might help you with your tension, because it’s one of the few bind-offs that doesn't require you to lift one stitch over another other stitch.

I chose to put this bind-off in the course because it's a nice building block for some of the more complicated bind-offs.


  1. K2togtbl.
  2. Move st from R needle back to L needle.
  3. Repeat steps 1-2 across.
  4. Cut yarn and pull through last stitch.
