This is a stretchy bind-off that is great for binding off on toe-up socks.


Instructions

To do the invisible ribbed bind-off, cut a long tail of at least 6 times the circumference of the project you want to bind off. Thread the tail on a tapestry needle.

Set-Up:
– go purlwise into stitch 1 (the stitch closest to the needle-tip)
– go knitwise FROM THE BACK into stitch 2.

Identify stitches 1, 2, 3, and 4. These labels do not change until you finish the repeat.

Repeat:
1) go knitwise into stitch 1, remove stitch from needle
2) go purlwise into stitch 3
3) go purlwise into stitch 2, remove stitch from needle
4) go knitwise FROM THE BACK into stitch 4

An easy mantra to repeat:
1) knit off purl,
2) purl off knit
