View Full Version : 3 needle bind off!

Well that was interesting. I didn't look at the finishing instructions until I had bound off both body pieces so didn't see the 3 needle bind off for the shoulders. I just took out the bind off and put them back on needles (I found a short length of the circular needles worked best for me and then the straight needle to knit onto. That method does give a nice finish to the shoulder seam I must admit. It DOES take some practice though, doesn't it? :frog:

Thanks to all the ladies who helped me with my pattern instructions for the sleeves yesterday. I still think it is confusing sometimes, but ahh well, I guess the more I do it, the more it will become routine for me.

It is great to have such wonderful support from the expert knitters here. I know all us newbies, appreciate it! :yay:

Congrats on the 3 needle bind-off! (Sorry, though, that you had to frog to get there, though.) That bind-off does take patience, but the finished seam is so lovely that it's worth the effort!

I'm glad you found the help you needed! :cheering:
