Video: Sloped Bind-Off

This bind-off has its own section because it’s the only one of its kind.

As the name suggests, this bind-off makes a sloped edge, which you would usually on the shoulder of a sweater.

Use the sloped bind-off any time your pattern calls for you to bind off a few stitches every right-side row to make a slanted edge.


Start on WS row before 1st BO row.

  1. P across to last st.
  2. Turn. 1 st rem. on R needle.
  3. Sl 1.
  4. BO 1.

________ Repeat:

  1. K1.
  2. BO 1.

________ End Repeat.

  1. Repeat steps 5-6 until you’ve bound off the # of sts required in pattern.
  2. K across row. Turn.
  3. Repeat steps 1-8 until you’ve bound off # of sts required in pattern.
  4. Cut yarn and pull through last st.

More Information

The normal way that a pattern has you bind off a slanted edge leaves a stair-step look.

The Sloped Bind-Off smooths out that edge and eliminates the stair-step effect. You would use this bind-off if you are planning on seaming up the shoulder seams later, using Mattress stitch or another finishing technique.

Note: Don't use this bind-off if your pattern requires you to use a seaming bind-off to bind-off the shoulder stitches later, because you need live stitches on the needles for that.
