Purl Bind-off Method

The Purl bind-off method creates a firm edge. It works in a similar fashion as the knit bind-off method except that it uses the purl stitch. It is useful for binding off a project that is knit in reverse stockinette stitch or one that has a garter stitch at the end. It can be used with either circular or flat knitting.
