If you need to review any lessons, links are available in the KAL Introduction. If you would like a printable copy of the entire pattern, the Whale Done Socks Pattern is available in my shop.
Lesson 7: Suspended Bind OffHow you bind off a toe up sock has a significant impact on the wearability of the sock. If you bind off too tightly, the cuff either won't stretch enough to pull the sock over your foot or the edge of the cuff could dig into your leg during wear, so it's important to skip the regular bind off and opt for a more flexible, stretchy technique.
I like to use a suspended bind off. The big difference between a regular bind off and suspended bind off is what you do with your passed over stitches. Let me show you.
Now it's your turn! Keep with the established ribbing pattern and use a suspended bind off to finish your sock.
