A cousin to the back stitch bind off, the stem stitch bind off is a pretty way to finish a piece of knitting when the edge needs just a little extra give. It even looks nice when what is normally considered the "wrong" side moves to center stage. If you sew or embroider, you'll also quickly see how this bind off is similar to the stem stitch used in needlework.
