Beginner Needs help
I have just started learning how to knit. I bought an "I taught myself knitting" kit.
I can cast on, knit and perl just fine and most of the binding off method down.

My question is this:
When binding off the last stitch according to the directions in my book, my entire work unravels afterwards.
Can someone please tell me how the last stitch is supposed to be BO.

Any and all input will be greatly appreciated.

Cut a length of yarn and pull the yarn through the last loop on the needle and it will lock it. Then you can weave it in.

Welcome to the forum!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Have you checked out Amy's videos? I'm pretty sure she shows how to weave in ends in the demo of a small project on this page.

More info here 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
