How to Make 3 Needles Bind Off

SHARE WITH THE WORLD!

The 3-Needle Bind Off is a great finishing technique for joining two pieces of knitting that are still on the needles or in provisional waste yarn. You will save lots of time because this method let you bind off and seam at the same time with a clean and perfect finishing for your knitting work, and is very easy and quick to make.

You will need your two knitting pieces and one extra needle.

Place the two wrong sides of the pieces you want to seam facing out and put the two needles together as you see on the picure

Slip a third working needle into the first stitch on each of the two needles as you going to knit.

Wrap yarn around working needle as if to knit

And knit the two stitches together

You have the first stitch on right needle

*Introduce third working needle into the first stitch on each of the two needles

With the end tip of one of your left hand needles pass second stitch of right needle over first stitch as you normally bind off

This is how it looks on the wrong side

This is how it looks on the right side, clean and perfect!

    Interesting, I’d never seen this before. Do you use this technique to join the various pieces of a project – say, the sleeves of a sweater?
