I started a scarf but after a bit decided I wanted to do it with a different stitch and thought it would be a good idea to learn to bind off before I had a precious project and found I was lost.
Turns out, that was a good idea. I watched the “binding off” video on this site and did really well until I got to the very last stitch. In the video, I would knit two stitches onto my right needle, then pass the first stitch over the second one and it comes off the needle. It worked great, again, until that last stitch.
What am I supposed to do there? I don’t have another stitch to put on my right needle so I can’t pass it over. Am I supposed to tie it off? I tried letting it off the needle and, obviously, it started to unravel my entire row.
ADD: Also, in the interest of starting a new project, I watched the long-tail cast on method (again, the video on this site). I’d love to try it, but what would I do if I had extra “tail” left over once I had finished my row? Trim it off?
My biggest worry here is that my project will unravel, both in casting on and binding off.
