I just used this bind off for a pair of toe up socks. It's for a K2 P2 rib so adjust the number of stitches to match your rib:
- On the row before you bind off: K2, M1, P2, M1 around.
- Bind off in pattern, but do not knit the M1 stitches— only slip them.
- When you get to the last stitch, pick up one stitch from across the gap and use that to bind off the last M1 stitch.
