In this video tutorial Liat Gat, of Knitting Superstar, shows us how to make an invisible ribbed bind-off: A stretchy invisible bind-off for 1×1 ribbing.
To do the invisible ribbed bind-off, cut a long tail of at least 6 times the circumference of the project you want to bind off. Thread the tail on a tapestry needle.
- go purlwise into stitch 1 (the stitch closest to the needle-tip)
- go knitwise FROM THE BACK into stitch 2.
Identify stitches 1, 2, 3, and 4. These labels do not change until you finish the repeat.
- go knitwise into stitch 1, remove stitch from needle
- go purlwise into stitch 3
- go purlwise into stitch 2, remove stitch from needle
- go knitwise FROM THE BACK into stitch 4
An easy mantra to repeat:
- knit off purl,
- purl off knit
