Learning How To Cast Off

This is another essential to know as a beginner knitter, how to cast off  (also known as binding off) your work.

  • To cast off stitches, start by knitting two stitches.
  • With your left needle select the first stitch you knit on the right needle (the bottom one) and pull it over the second stitch (the top one).
  • Repeat this until you have no stitches left and you will have a neat edge along your work.
  • Casting off is a way to take the working stitches off your needle, to create a nice finished edge and stop the stitches from unravelling.
