ive been using the basic bind off from the video on here but find it doesnt have any give. i did use a bigger needle but it still feels tight.
is there a bind off with more give? im working on log cabin squares at the moment so i pick up from this edge in some cases :)

Try this one - k2, then knit those 2tog tbl (put L needle into the front of them to do this), k1, k2togtbl, k1 k2togtbl, and so on. Very stretchy. Or there's Jen's surprisingly stretchy BO, which can be found on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abBhe-JYmgI&feature=channel) and at knitty. (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall09/FEATjssbo.php)

For log cabin squares I probably would use a bigger needle, but Jeny's Surprisingly stretchy bind off would work, too. It's linked in the previous post.
