broken yarn at bind off
Help! I'm a new knitter and I just broke the yarn at the bind off site before I could weave it in. What can I do?

Can you tighten up a couple of your BO sts (pull them by hand) to give you another inch or so? I use a crochet hool to pull the tail through the other sts, so I don't need as much length as peope who use a darning needle. If you have 2-3" you can try a hook or use a smaller knitting needle to work them through the other sts.

There is a bind off that uses no yarn. I remembered this fact and did a search for it and found info on it here on the Knitting Harlot's blog. LINK

It is the second thing on the page--Crochet Bind Off. She says it works great in your situation. You will need to take out the whole bind off row I suppose and do it over this way. Check it out.

But that crochet BO comes out really really tight. When I do one like that I plan ahead and work the last row of knitting with a needle about 4 sizes larger.
