Better Bind-off?
When I do the basic bind-off in stocking st, I don't like the way the edge rolls forward onto the right side. I really don't want that look for the finish, if I'm binding off at the neckline for a doll's sweater. I'd like that edge to sit right on top.

Is it something I'm doing wrong, or is there a knack to this, or - ? I've found it sits a little better if I alternate k & p, but that doesn't look especially neat.

Are there other bind-offs that work better, or is it me?

Thanks for any tips and help!
