Bind Off | K2TOGTBL

Bind Off | K2TOGTBL

The K2TOGTBL bind off creates a neat edge with a little more stretch than the cable method. Great for cowls, shawls and cuffs where you need a little give without any flare.

This bind off is worked the same flat or in the round.

Written Tutorial

  1. To begin, insert your right hand needle into the back of the first 2 stitches on the left needle from right to left (i.e. through the back loop).

  2. Wrap the yarn around anti-clockwise.

  3. Bring the needle forwards, pulling the loop through and slide the 2 worked stitches off the needle.

  4. Now take the new stitch on the right needle and pass back to the left purlwise - so line the needles up and slip the stitch across.

  5. Repeat from step 1 until you have 1 stitch remaining on the right needle.

  6. Cut the yarn to the required length and pull the needle up, extending the loop and pulling the yarn through.
  7. If working flat, weave in ends.  If working in the round, neaten the last stitch (see tutorial) and weave in ends.
