‘Casting Off’ For Beginners

As with everything you start it must come to an end. So this video shows you how to ‘cast off’ or aka ‘bind off’ your stitches so the design doesn’t fall apart at the ends. Yet again, a nice clear and concise delivery is given so it makes for a pleasurable viewing experience.

    1. Being new to knitting, your tutorials probably kept me from giving up before I started! You explained everything in simple terms and I was able to really get a handle on things. I had already started a project before I stumbled across your video on the purl stitch and though I decided to finish that project even though it was a total disaster, after watching your videos I am feeling more confident and ready to start my next project…which I can read the pattern for! So thank you so much!

    2. yay, I’m so glad my videos have been helpful to you! I initially learned to knit from YouTube but had to play back tutorials so many times because they were too fast for me, so I try to go slowly & explain things as simply as possible! : )

    3. I’m glad this video was done at a helpful pace! As for the dropped stitch, I would have to make a separate video for that. But for now, try searching YouTube or google for “how to fix a dropped stitch” and you will find many different techniques. Good luck!!

    4. aww, I’m so glad it is helpful!! I initially learned how to knit from YouTube, but I seriously had to watch a bunch of different videos and play them back so many times bc I felt like they went too fast or didn’t show things close-up enough from a good angle. So I decided to start this channel! : ) so glad it’s helping! happy knitting!!

    6. What I usually do with the string left over is a tie a really small/tight knot (so it’s not visible) — and cut the yarn so the “end” yarn that is hanging off is about 6 inches long, then weave in the end. I plan on making a video regarding weaving in the ends. Stay tuned!

    7. Yup, the stitch furthest to your right has to be pulled off/taken off the needle/stick. But make sure the stitch that is on the left stays on the right needle. Hope this helps! It may help to watch that portion of the video again for clarification : )
