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 free knit blanket pattern, Kisses and Hugs Reversible Blanket.
Have you used this bind off?We'd love it if you share your project photos in the comments below.
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, it goes well with nearly any stitch pattern. For instance, when used with stockinette stitch it provides a nice rolled edge.
Sometimes you just need an easy project to work on, and Kelley's new free pattern, the Simple Ribbed Hat, is the perfect cast-on for times like these.
We debuted this pattern on a recent Technique Tuesday on Facebook Live, and Kelley used it to demonstrated how to fix a few common mistakes knitters make all the time (even a pro-level knitter like Kelley!).
You'll learn how to fix dropped stitches, turn purls into knits, and fix incorrectly oriented stitches.
Have you heard of Izzy Dolls? They're darling little toys that are included in aid packages, and are sometimes a child's first toy. Designer Esther Braithwaite has developed many patterns for Izzy Dolls, sometimes called Comfort Dolls, and they're available free in her Ravelry store.
Kelley fell in love with them and decided to feature Izzy Dolls on her weekly Facebook Live broadcast, Technique Tuesday.
