Bind-Offs for Garter Stitch, Standard Bind-Offs
This is a beginner bind-off that is the basis for most of the bind-offs in this dictionary.
This bind-off is moderately stretchy. It is good for Stockinette stitch fabric and you would it use when you’re just learning how to bind-off or any time you want a basic, no-fuss edge.
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.
This is an easy, medium speed bind-off. It’s about as stretchy as or a little stretchier than the Standard Bind-Off.
One benefit to this bind-off is that it might help you with your tension, because it’s one of the few bind-offs that doesn’t require you to lift one stitch over another other stitch.
I chose to put this bind-off in the course because it’s a nice building block for some of the more complicated bind-offs.
This is a medium-fast, medium difficulty bind-off that matches the Chain Cast-On.
This is a fast bind-off which I really like.
It’s a good stretchy bind-off for beginners. To be more exact — it is very stretchy for binding off on Stockinette stitch, and moderately stretchy on ribbing.
It also looks decorative, which is unique and unusual for the standard bind-offs.
This is a fantastic stretchy bind-off that even many advanced knitters have not heard of.
It’s one of the three stretchiest standard bind-offs (the other two being the Elastic Bind-Off and EZ Sewn Bind-Off).
It’s also amazing for Garter stitch.
This is a very easy bind-off.
It’s fast and firm and it does not roll, especially if you block it.
The thick braid gives it a simple but decorative look. It would be really nice on the edge of something like a potholder or a dishcloth where you don’t need a stretchy edge and you’d prefer the bind-off to lay flat.
This bind-off is very stretchy but, importantly, bounces easily back into shape. Nobody likes a stretched-out bind-off.
It’s great on Garter stitch and Stockinette stitch as well.
