View Full Version : binding off

:?? Want to bind off and saw the Kitchener weaving. Looks like I can do that but the pattern leaves me with 23 stitches. Then says bind off 4 sts at beg of next 2 RS rows , 5 sts at beg of next 3 rows. Would you change the pattern? It is an off one shoulder knit.
:shrug: There is only one shoulder but do I need to make the bind off on an angle. Do you know if there is a difference in 5 rows(10rows) binding off. What is the neatest binding off stitch. How can I find it on the internet. Or I'll buy a book. Picture attached.

You can do short rows instead of binding off in increments. On the row before your first BO, stop with 4 sts left and turn your work. On the next WS row stop with 8 sts left (the 4 from the first time, and the next 4). Then knit 5 sts left on the next 3 WS rows. You'll have all 23 sts on your needle, but at an angle. Then put them on a stitch holder until you get the other shoulder done, matching the short rows. Then you can do the kitchener BO.
