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.
