Thank you all for the replies. As for the 3 needle bind off - I guess I should just try
I had never heard of a provisional cast on. I read and looked at some video's about it and I think that it will indeed be quite useful.
Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention.
However, I understand that this is a cast on techique. So it won't apply for the bracelets I already made which are waiting to be sewn/knit together so they can go around my wrist
I guess I'll just have to be creative with those...
I'll be back to show what a finished product with this 3 needle bind off looks like.
BTW that shawl looks amazing and I can see how this technique is useful there (without having to pick up stitches).
