Knitting Tutorial: Suspended Bind Off Purlwise

Knitting Tutorial: Suspended Bind Off Purlwise - Similar to the purled bind off, but with a little extra flexibility and stretchiness.
The suspended bind off is probably the method I use most frequently to finish my knits. It's a close cousin to the common knit (or purled) bind off, but it has a little bit of added flexibility. In this lesson I'll show you how to do the suspended bind off purlwise. (Here's a link to learn how to do the suspended bind off in ribbing.)

Before You Begin

The secret to the suspended bind off, and what gives it the extra stretch, happens when you pass one stitch over the other. Instead of passing the stitch over and dropping it off both knitting needles, you use the left needle tip to pass the stitch over, then leave that passed stitch on the left needle as you work the next stitch. It takes a little maneuvering, but it's well worth the effort.
