I’m just finishing a baby blanket and would like to know if anyone has any great tips for binding off to get the correct gauge. Eveytime I bind off I seem to make it either too tight or too loose. I’ve done several test samples to try to get it right, but no luck. If I get it wrong on this blanket edge, it will be quite noticeable and ruin the symmetry.
Hoping someone out there will have a great tip or trick for me. This blanket is a gift, the first knitting “gift” I’ve ever attempted and I really would love to get it looking just perfect.
I’m binding off in a P bind off because my cast on was done with a long-tail knit. I’d like both edges to match as they seem to be more than obvious to the eye. I’d hate to see my carefully crafted project end up too droopy or too squished on the finished bind off.
Thanks again for all your great help!
