Video: One-Over-Two (Gathered) Bind-Off

This is an intermediate bind off that is very firm and pulls in a lot.

It’s a very narrow bind off, and you’ll want to make sure that you use a large needle — at least two to three sizes bigger than the one that you were using on your knitting — so that the bind-off doesn’t pull in too much.

This bind-off is the same as the Double-Stitch Bind-Off, which is done with two different colors to make a striped bind off.


  1. Use a needle in your R hand 3-4 sizes bigger than the one in your left.
  2. K1 twice.
  3. K1.
  4. Lift 3rd st off over 1st 2 sts.
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 across.
  6. BO 1.
  7. Cut yarn and pull through last st.
