Stretchy Bind-Off

This is how I bind off for shawls, it gives me enough stretch to block lace our nicely while still giving me a nice clean edge.

If you find you’re a rather tight knitter, or tend to bind off tightly, going up a needle size or two when binding off can also help.


  • K2tog-tbl: Knit 2 stitches together through the back loops.
  • K: Knit.


Set-Up: K1.
Step 1: K1, pass stitches back to your left-hand needle purlwise, k2tog-tbl.

Repeat step 1 until you’ve worked all your stitches. Pull yarn through the last stitch and weave in your end. With your tapestry needle, weave in all ends.
