Knit Bind-off Method

Also Known As

  • Flat bind-off
The Knit bind-off method creates a neat and firm edge. It is the most common bind-off method used on the loom and the easiest to learn. It requires no extra tool other than what you use for the loom itself. It also know as the Flat bind-off method and is similar to the Crochet bind-off methods but it is done by knitting on the loom instead of crocheting with a crochet hook. Be sure to use the ssk decrease stitch instead of the k2tog decrease stitch or the bind-off will be too small.
