Binding Off
I have been knitting for about a year, but have not tackled too many projects. Recently decided to push the envelope with a more challenging pattern, Stephen West's Akimbo. I am almost finished. Directions for bind off is "bind off all stitches". I am clueless which bind off to use. Seems overwhelming but maybe not. Thanks for any help
On this.

Since the pattern directions do not instruct to bind off in pattern, I would do the Basic Knit Bind Off.

This bind off is easy to work too tightly; to bind off loosely, use a needle a size or two larger in the right hand only.

Are you doing the blanket or the scarf? They are both very beautiful.

Typically I would bind off in pattern. If what you do looks good and you're happy with it, that's all that matters.
