circular needle bind off

bjames's picture

I am knitting a hat from the crown to the rim on circular needles, and want to know the technique for "binding off" while on circular needles. I cannot find any video demonstrating this method. Does anyone know of any links to a video, or easy to follow verbal directions?

You bind off on circular needles just as you would on straight needles. On a hat, make the bind-off looser than usual, use a needle a bit larger or do a crochet bind-off.

There is a list of stretchy bind-offs at: http://socknitters.com
Sometimes these lessons are only up for a limited time, so if you can't find it, email me and I will send it to you as an attachment. You might find it elsewhere if you Google stretchy cast offs

As Starzoe, says bind off just as you would for straight knitting. I use a needle at least two sizes larger than the working size to keep the bound edge flexible.
