Greets and Tweets to everyone!
How 'bout a 3 needle bind off refresher? Why 3 needle?, you ask...
The 3 needle bind off is simple and a great technique to know for seaming two edges together ( like when you're knitting a sweater and need to join the sleeve to shoulder)...not so great for socks as there will be a slight ridge on the inside.
In a nutshell - here's what you're gonna do...
Separate and Hold your edge stitches on 2 needles (with right sides together which makes an invisible seam) Take your not so odd man out 3rd needle and knit together a stitch from the front needle with one from the back.
knit both live stitches onto 3rd needle
andhere it is on the 3rd needle
You will repeat knitting a stitch from that front needle with one from the back needle one more time with feeling!
Repeat knitting a front and back pair of stitches together, then bind off.
Whew - sounds complicated yet simple all at once!
