What is tie off?

Hi, I’m knitting some little animals…! The pattern says to “tie off” the leg. What is tie off?? I have 8 active stitches on the needle. I’ve finished the leg and am ready to start the next one, but don’t know how the heck to “tie off”!!
Thanks to all who take the time to respond! :muah: :muah: [/b][/list][/list]


They probably want you to put your yarn on a tapestry needle and put it through the remaining stitches that are on your needle and pull it through, taking the needle out, of course, and closing the end of the leg like a drawstring bag.

:Thanks, Ingrid…you are a lamb as usual!! :notworthy:
