How to Bind Off –
Step 1: Knit the first 2 stitches like normal
Step 2: Insert the left hand needle in front, through both of the stitches in the right hand needle
Step 3: Wrap the working yarn around the end of the right hand needle
Step 4: Pull the working yarn through both stitches, 1 stitch on needle.
Step 5: Knit 1 more stitch so you will have 2 stitches on your right hand needle and repeat steps 2-4 until you have only 1 stitch left on your right needle.
Cut yarn and pull the yarn through that last stitch closing it.
After you bind off all of your stitches, this is what the edge will look like.
And that is how easy it is to bind off your piece of knitting!
