Binding off that stretches????
I made a hat and have added a rim of fun fur on the bottom, but when I bind off, there is no stretch and I can't put the hat on. Is there some way to bind off that is stretchy?

I love EZ's Sewn Bind Off. There are several tutorials on line for it. I use it for my socks when I knit toe up.

I like the bind off Lizzy mentioned - used to be my favorite stretchy bindoff.
