Sometimes you want a little pretty at the end of a project, and the picot bind-off is just the ticket. It makes a lovely edging as you cast off, perfect for baby items or anything, really.
There are a few decorative bind-offs worth knowing, and Kelley demonstrated two of them, the picot bind-off and the Channel Island bind-off, on this week's Technique Tuesday on Facebook Live.
I've used the picot bind-off many times when knitting scarves, shawls, and baby items. It was used as an edging on a baby blanket I knit, and it really turned up the cuteness volume! So darling.
Kelley used the picot bind-off on Andrea Mowry's Golden Hour shawl, and it worked out beautifully.
I love the option of the Channel Island bind-off as a decorative edge. It's lower profile than the picot bind-off, but decorative in its own way.
Kelley used the Channel Island bind-off in her new free leg warmers and boot cuffs pattern, which she introduced this week on Technique Tuesday.
Bravo is the yarn Kelley used for this project. It's so perfect for leg warmers and boot cuffs; warm and soft!
What's your favorite decorative bind-off?
