Bind-Offs for Shawls
Whether your knitting a lacy neckpiece for spring or heavy-wrap for winter, it’s good to have a few bind-offs in your skill arsenal to bring your project to finishing success. This week on Ask Me Monday I show 3 great bind-offs for shawls and shawlettes: the Yarn-Over Bund-Off, Stretchy K2tog tbl Bind-Off, and the Picot Bind-off. Let’s get to it!
