Bind Off Opinions
I am currently working on a small slip case for a 7" tablet. I've gotten to the end, but the directions only say, "Bind Off using a stretchy method".

I'm working with WW yarn on size 5 needles.

I'd like to know which method would be best to use in this case and the end result wouldn't be big and loopy.

Thank-you.

there are several ways that you can get a stretchy bind off but here's a nice tutorial for one, Jeny's Amazingly Stretchy Bind Off.

You might consider it for the tablet case.

Thank-you for the link. I'll try it; hopefully I can get it right as I knit English style and that video is in Continental style.

Thank-you again.

Look up Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off on YouTube. There are several videos. The one from Planet Purl is English and probably others.
