About The Icelandic Bind Off

Here's a quick video showing how to knit the Icelandic Bind Off. This Bind Off goes very well with a garter stitch because it has a purl bump edge.

I paired it with an Old Norwegian Cast On (I showed this in another video) to make the edge on my Kisses and Hugs Reversible Blanket.

We'd love it if you share your project photos in the comments below 

Background On The Icelandic Bind-Off

This is a quick and efficient bind-off good for intermediate knitters. It is one of the the stretchiest of the standard bind-offs. 

Although I like using this bind-off with the garter stitch you can use it on nearly any fabric. For instance with a stockinette stitch it provides a nice rolled edge.

She shared tips on how she modified the pattern to match this yarn since it was a little lighter weight than the recommended Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky (Also a great yarn).  She then shared some tips on how to add the cables without a cable needle.
