Question concerning 3 needle bind-off
My handbag pattern calls for a 3 needle bind off and I've looked at Amy's video and it seems simple enough; however, my pattern tells me to divide the stitches evenly among 2 needles...do I take them off of the circular needles and put them on 2 dpn's and if this is the case, the pattern doesn't specify using dpn's with the exception of the i-cord handle, so do I use the same dpn's as called for in the pattern for the i-cord?

Divide the two halves you want to connect between two straight needles (or the ends of the circular, as long as the fronts are facing), doesn't matter, really, you're only using one end. With a third needle you do the bind-off. I usually use a needle one size larger to knit the bind off with.

I just did 3 needle bind off for the first time last week and OMG!! Loved it!! It's so simple and cool!! I used the same size DPNs as I had been knitting the coat with....but if I didn't have them on hand I would have just used the two ends of the circ. Just remember to flip it so that the right sides are facing.

If I leave them on the circulars, the right side is on the inside of the circs, so I just start the bind off with them facing each other, right?
