Bind Off Anchor Yarn
Bind Off at Anchor Yarn
(If your pattern calls for the anchor yarn to remain in the knitted piece, as in a hat, be sure to follow the pattern instructions.)
The bind off puts a nice finished edge on your cast on stitches and allows the removal of the anchor yarn.
1. Start at end opposite the yarn tail. Use your crochet hook. Slip the first (2) loops onto crochet hook.
2. Pull loop closest to hook thru the other loop. Continue to end by picking up each additional loop. When you have the last loop on crochet hook, pull the yarn tail thru the last loop for knot. Tuck the yarn tail into the finished knit with crochet hook. Carefully remove anchor yarn from knitwear, and your knitted piece is complete. There is no need to block the piece with double knit.
