I wonder if there is a name for this as I am not finding what I need when I search and perhaps its just that I don’t know the correct name for it?
I cast on for a pair of slippers with cable cast on, it didn’t specify what sort of cast on and this is what I know.
Now at the end of the work I am told to bind off.
The work is folded so that the cast on edge and bind off edge become the cuff of the slipper. The cuff also has 5 rows in a different colour.
With my normal bind off the second colour it shorter and although it looks nice it doesn’t match the cast on edge at all. It will look strange if I seam these together.
I tried out a cable cast off but it produces a shape of yarn going in the wrong direction and looks terrible (although the length of the cuff was correct with the added bulk of those twists).
Also I need it to match the back of the cable cast on, not the front, so I need something different.
I’ve tried something like the cable cast off but instead of twisting the stitch clockwise (sorry I don’t know how to describe it), I twisted anticlockwise. This is the closest I’ve got to making it look like the back side of the cast on edge with the yarn pattern going in the right direction and the same amount of length created by the extra bulk, but I’m not sure this is a “real” stitch, if it has a name or if there is something else I should be doing instead.

Top blue is my regular bind off, looks too short as though there is a row less but it’s the same number if rows.
Next down is a sample in pink of whatever it is I made up which is the closest I got so far.
Next is the back if my cable cast on that I want to match.
Bottom is the cable cast off I watched on video but it all twists the wrong way for what I need.
Thoughts and suggestions will be very much appreciated
