Fetching (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html)
Look at the paragraph towards the end, "Picot Bind Off":

BO 5 sts, [slip st on right needle back to left needle; CO 1 st using Cable Cast On method, BO 6 sts] until all sts have been bound off, slip st on right needle back to left needle; CO 1 st using Cable Cast On method, BO remaining st.
"until all sts have been bound off...", then "BO remaining st." ? If all sts were binded off, why there still be a "left needle", CO 1 st where? and where the remaining st from? :??

Thank you in advance. You guys are the best.

every time you bind off there is one stitch left over. that's the stitch you pull your yarn through usually to close the loop. That's the stitch they are talking about.

Brenda:
Do you know why there are 2 CO 1 st at the binding process?

Amanda:
Thanks for the KAL reference. There are 10 pages about this project :shock:

nope...i haven't done this pattern but i would assume it would make sense after doing it. i would definitely check the KAL that's a lot of pages but i would guess someone else probably has the same questions.
