Cozy Elastic Bind Off for #lifeiscozy_tutorials ➰ 

Happy and a bit nervous to share my self-invented technique with you ☺️ 

I was searching for a way to bind off the ribbing that would give me a very elastic yet not too loose edge and could be performed without the grafting needle. This search ended up with the invention of this method, which is actually a combination of several bind off techniques.
I love to use it for all kinds of cuffs, as exept for the elasticity it also has a very nice braid-like edge that polishes the look of a garment ✨ 

Both the video and the instructions are for 1×1 ribbing. But this bind off can be also used for any other ribbing (2×2, 3×1, etc.) — just repeat the part for knit and purl stitches the desired number of times. 

WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS 

———————————————- 

If your ribbing round/row starts with a knit stitch:
1. k1
2. p1, pass the last st from the right needle over
3. k1, slip 2sts from the right needle back to the left needle
4. k2tog tbl
Repeat 2-4 until all the sts are worked.
