Knitting in a round

So right now I am almost done with a scarf that I am knitting in a circle. How do I close the top so that it isn’t a tube anymore? and the bottom for that matter. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated! :smiley:

A really good way to close the top is with a three needle bind-off. You can match the bottom by picking up stitches and then binding them off the same way. The way to avoid picking up stitches in the future is to do a provisional cast on in the beginning, but it’s too late for that now, of course.
