  1. I love your videos. I thought you had one about connecting the last stitch with the first after binding off but I couldn’t find it. I think I’m overdoing it to make sure it doesn’t come undone. Do you have a video for this?

  2. I love to come to you for help. You are a born teacher. I thought this was the way to do this but thanks for the confidence builder.

  3. Hi Staci,

    I bought the Striped Cardi Patternand Im confused on how to bind off bottom of sweater. , because its K1 P1 then you have BO in Patt. Does this mean you want me to k then P then bind over p or should I just knit all the way across?
    PS so far I’m enjoying making this. Your directions are wonderful to follow and I thank your for all your videos. Thank you, Linda C.

  4. Hi Linda – yes, “binding-off in pattern” means to knit the knits and purl the purls (as you have done in the ribbing up to that point), then binding off as you go. In other words, work a normal rib row, but every time you have two stitches on the right needle, bind one off over the other.

  5. I love, love, love your tutorials. Do you think you may want to make one on how to make yoga socks? I cannot seem to be able to figure them out…..

  6. Thank you for explaining where you put the yarn when binding off after doing a purl stitch. It was driving me crazy! I am about to bind off the seed stitch bottom border of the Toddler Tunic, and I wanted to make sure to do it right.

    I love the sweater you are wearing in this video, both the style and the color. Is it one of your designs, or is the pattern available anywhere that you know of?


  7. My bind off edge in ribbing always looks longer than the cast on edge, for example, 5 rows of ribbing on each edge of a headband. Should I used 5 rows on the cast on ribbing edge and 4 rows ribbing on the bind off edge? What would you do? I would prefer to stick to the equal number of rows but it is very noticable with aran wool.

  8. Gail – Tension issues like that should be at least somewhat resolved after washing and blocking…I’ve never heard of this problem before! You can always reduce the number of rows if you find that is an easy solution.

  9. I just love your videos and I see that you are wearing my favorite sweater. I live in New England and that sweater would be perfect. I have asked before but it was quite a while ago. I was wondering if you would consider doing a video on it?

  10. My bind off edge is always shaped different than the other, noticeably differs. Am I doing something wrong? I would like it to kook as squared off as the other. Please help!

  11. Hello,
    I just finished a baby blanket and the rows where I began the pattern created a nice scalloped edge. Hoever, when I did the bind off the edge came out straight. We’re my stitches too tight when binding off? I thought the edge I finished with would look like the edge at the beginning. What did I do wrong?
