Tidy Finishing on a Circular Bind-Off

The bind-off row in circular knitting can leave your with an enormous “jog” between the first and last BO stitch, especially in larger gauge knitting. Here is how to smooth that out.

Please excuse the green screen background – we’re under a bit of construction in the studio. Exciting changes to come!

Information on things you’ll see in this video:
The poncho on the mannequin behind me is my Rodeo Drive Poncho, pattern + video tutorial.

The purple scarf I’m wearing is this pattern.

The yarn I used in the bulky sample is Berroco Peruvia Quick.

The needles I used are by Clover.

The nail color I’m wearing is by OPI, “Berries in the Canaries”.

  4. How perfectly timely, I’m about to finish a baby blanket that I started from the center and was wondering how best to finish the edge. Love your technique videos.
