Hi! I've been knitting for a couple of months now, and until recently have only made scarves. I always noticed my bind off being extremely tight, so tight its hard to even continue after a few stitches. The scarves turned out ok, their flexibility hiding the tight BO, but now I'm trying to make wrist warmers. After much toiling with knitting in the round I ended up with a great piece thats unforunately unusable because of the tight BO. I can't get my fingers through! My bind off method is the simplist basic knit BO, should it be so hard? Thanks!

when i stick my needle in the second stitch i usually give my needles a little pull so that the loop is a little bigger than usual, then i knit it. makes it looser on the right hand needle before you slip the other one over top of it.
Thanks a lot! I ended up using two needles since I didn't have anything bigger. It worked out great, and through it I realized what I was doing too tight and was able to drop the second needle after 10 or 15 stitches. Thanks ladies, no more BO blues!
