Bind off stitches at neck edge

Hello dear fellow knitters,

I’m a relatively new knitter and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to bind off stitches at a neck edge without leaving a stitch hanging on my right needle; any input is appreciated; thanks very much.

You always have one stitch left from a BO. Cut the tail, and either thread that through the loop, or pull the loop out.

well, that’s straightforward enough; funny, that none of the instructions tell you to do that; I guess it’s just a given with experience; thank you again.
