Video: Suspended Bind-Off (Variation)
This is a fast and easy bind-off that is based on the Standard Bind-Off and is a bit stretchier.
Its main benefit is that it can help your stitches come out more evenly if you have trouble getting a good, even tension on the Standard Bind-Off, especially if the difficulty you have is binding off too tight.

Even if you don’t have trouble with your tension, you should learn this bind-off because it uses a basic technique (the “suspended” bit) that is used on some more complex bind-offs, namely the Frilled Standard Bind-Off and the Frilled Decrease Bind-Off.
This is called the suspended bind-off variation because this is a variation on the Suspended Bind-Off. I've chosen to teach you the variation instead of the original because the variation comes out the same and it’s easier to do.
