Video: Undo Your Bind-Off Stitches

Difficulty: Easy

If you don't like the look of your bind-off, or if you did it too tight, you can always undo it.

Just work back, one stitch at a time, removing the bind-off and putting the stitch back on your needle.


  1. Pull R needle out.
  2. Stabilize the stitch. Tug working yarn until stitch pops out.
  3. Insert L needle from front to back into closest st.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 across sts to be undone.
