I thought I knew how to do this but now I'm not sure. I checked to see if there was a video and didn't find one. Would appreciate a little lesson. Thanks in advance.

I am not familiar with that bind off technique; however, I did find verbal and or photo explanation on how to do it.

scroll down to the last comment for explanation.
I also saw on someones' blog that they show you how to execute that BO in The Knitting Answer Book so if you can get your hands on a copy of the book it might be helpful also.
HTH.

Sorry for the delay with my thanks for your finds .... I really appreciate you taking the time to track these down. I did do a variation but after ending up with a MESS. I tried several bind offs, didn't like them, pulled out my needle only to have the misty alpaca stitches collaspe - so after some sweating and nail biting got the stitches back on my needle .... The shawl is done now and is drying on the blocking board. I did find out that when doing the yarn over bindoff, NOT to do it every stitch, but perhaps every 3 or 4th or so. OH - I bought the "Knitting Answer Book" which has the yarn over bind off in there. It's a great little book.
