This one is super stretchy!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I've always liked slip 1, knit or purl 1, psso (pass slipped stitch over the stitch just knit) which looks similar to the knitty video.) I can't see the difference anyway).

It's easy to remember: Sl1,K1,psso.

my favorite is the sewn bind off on Silver's Sock site

I have also used a bind-off that adds stitches in as you go so you end up binding off more stitches than you cast-on

the JSSBO, as linked above. That does the trick, no problem.

Or do an italian bind off (but that can be too tight on socks, sometimes)
