Learn to Knit -- Crocheted Cast Off

Time for another little video to share with you a cast off or bind off technique that I really like. It's called Crocheted Cast Off or Crocheted Bind Off. Now you know why I like it ... because it's really crochet, my first love in handwork!

I recently used this method to finish off the garter stitch edge of my very first Oddball Baby Blanket that I had the privilege of working on. It worked out nicely for that project because I was going to be crocheting a border around the blanket anyway.

If you've never tried this method of binding off your knitting, take a look and see how easy it is.

Give it a try on your next pair of booties or your next baby blanket and let me know what you think.

Happy Stitching!

  • That's pretty cool! So I guess you could take the crocheting a little further with a half double or double crochet to get a little picot edge?
    Appreciate your videos. And your little extra thoughts included in videos and patterns.
