Sewn bind off again

By Megan Goodacre

Here’s a very nice bind off technique that is worked with a yarn needle rather than the knitting needles. (I’ve also seen this called Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Sewn Bind Off, which probably means she “unvented” it.)

The sewn bind off is more subtle looking that a regular knit bind off, and looks very nice with garter stitch.

You will need a blunt yarn needle.

Break the yarn leaving a very long tail, about 3 times the final length of your bind off. Thread the tail on to the yarn needle.
