Bind off

You would knit 1, purl 1 then bind off by pulling the knit stitch over the purl stitch. Be sure to keep it loose though because the bind off will affect the stretchyness of your project at that end.

Knitting with multiple colors/yarn

When you cast on more than one color together (say 4) it creates 4 loops on the needle at the same time. Once casted on and you begin to knit/purl, do you knit each look separately or all 4 together?
