A Binding Off ?
How do I bind off a scarf that was knit in seed stitch, on an even number of stitches? Thank you for your help.

Binding off is just lifting the one st over the other instead of leaving them on the right needle. So just knit the sts as if you were knitting another row in pattern, only lift the sts over each other. K1, p1, pass first st over, k1, pass first st over, p1, pass first st over, etc.

I think every bind off method would work, but if you want to bind off in pattern, then do as suzeeq said.

Binding off in the pattern is usually better as binding off in knit or purl only would make a little tighter bindoff.
