Tuesday’s Knitting Tip – Joining a 3-Needle Bind Off

Share Button

This week, our Design Manager, Kirsten, shows us how to join a 3-needle bind off. This is such a wonderful technique for joining a vertical piece of knitting to a horizontal piece; such as the sleeves to the body of a sweater, or the edging of a shawl. The alternative to the 3-needle bind off is more cumbersome and involves binding off using the traditional yarn over method, then sewing the pieces together. This technique tends to be very tight and can cause the project to pucker. The 3-needle bind off keeps your project looking seamless!

Now that you’re familiar with the technique, you can cast on for theĀ Multi-Directional Cowl, the Rhea Lace Stole, or the Rhea Lace Scarf!
