BO - Which to use on Irish Hiking Scarf?
Hi again. You were so helpful on my last question that I have to return! I just finished the scarf (it came out so nice!) and I don't want to ruin it on the bind off. Do I switch between the knit and purl bind offs following the pattern or just do a knit bind off? My cast on is fairly stretchy-loose, so should I go up a to a size 9 needle for the finishing?Thank you in advance.
Boy, I wish I could think of something creative to say now that you are reading this.

When you bind off, you work the stitches just like you would if you were just working a row. If you're doing, for example, a k2p2 rib, you knit two stitches, pass the first stitch over the second, purl one stitch, pass the now-first (second knit) stitch over the first purl stitch, purl another stitch, pass the first purl stitch over the second one, and so forth.

Welcome, by the way!
