I am getting ready to finish another pair of socks which I knit from the toe up. However, I am struggling with the bind off. Can anyone give me suggestions on how to make it more elastic? The cuff is merely a K2P2 ribbing... Thanks so much ..
There are a bunch of stretchy bind-offs you can try. A good one is Denise's variation on EZ's sewn bind off. This site has a list of other links you might also want to check out. (It has lots of other useful sock-knitting links too.)
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
