Hello, everybody! Boy, I really need to start being more active. Anyway, my question is about binding off in the round. I really don’t like the gathered bind off method because when I try to tie it off, it just comes loose. This is bothering me because I take commissions and knit amigurumi dolls for people. Is there an alternative way to binding off? I was checking out the BO videos and came across the One-Over-Two BO. The description said that it gathers and I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried this method before?
My suggestion would be to cast on a small amount of sts with some scrap yarn, work a few rounds and then try it. It would seem to gather up the edge quite tightly.
