Knitting Tutorial: Elastic Bind Off

Knitting Tutorial: The elastic bind off is a stretchier version of the lace bind off and works well for toe up sock cuffs and other edges that need extra elasticity
I love knitting socks from the toe up and one method I regularly use to finish my socks is the elastic bind off. This technique works well for sock cuffs or any other knit edge that needs a little extra stretch.

Elastic Bind Off

The elastic bind off is a slightly stretchier version of the lace bind off. It can be worked across ribbing, stockinette, or just about any stitch pattern. You should be aware that this bind off tends to flare out the edge slightly.
