Not enough to bind off
I don't have enough yarn to bind off fully, but I'm about halfway through. What do I do? Can this even be fixed?

I thought I left enough. Dang it. I'm making the squares afghan if that makes a difference.

Scroll down just a hair on this page and there is a tutorial on 'crochet bind off', which takes NO yarn.

You could also undo the BO you have done, take out the last row and start the BO from there.

I figured it out myself a long time ago; I noticed that the BO looks like a chain st and the it's similar to crochet. I found that I definitely need to knit the last row on a larger needle when I use the crochet hook, or the BO will be too tight. It's good when you have about 300 sts to BO on a shawl.

I've noticed that the BO looks like crochet, and if I'd thought of it, maybe I could have figured this out too. But it never occured to me. That could be a useful arrow in my quiver. Thanks for sharing that one.
