Firm (Non-Stretchy) Bind-Offs

These bind-offs do not stretch at all.

They are useful on fabric that draws in a lot, like all-over cables, where you’d need a bind-off that is actually narrower than your typical standard bind off.

Firm (Non-Stretchy) Bind-Offs

Without-Knitting Bind-Off

This is an intermediate bind-off that is like the Standard Bind-Off but that does not use any yarn. It pulls in slightly and is not stretchy.

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.
