Casting off
Does anyone have any suggestions as how to cast off loosely?
When I cast off, it is so tight.

Thank you!!

You can go up a couple needle sizes, that helps, but basically you just have to not pull on the yarn at all when you knit or purl the stitch or lift the one over the other.

I'm a big fan of Sue's method with the larger needle but here's another way to do a stretchy bind off.
