What do you do with the last stitch when binding off?
2. Work the last two stitches as an SSK – slip one stitch knitwise from the left needle to the right needle, then slip the other stitch in the same fashion, return both stitches back to the left needle and knit them together through the back loop. 3. Now pass one stitch over the other to finish the bind off.
How do I stop my knitting from curling on the sides?
The most well known method to prevent curling is by blocking. How do you do that? When you’re finished knitting your project and you’ve bound off your stitches, put your garment into tepid water with a bit of pH neutral soap. Let the wool soak for about 30 minutes, but don’t rub!
