Icelandic Bind Off

In this tutorial I demonstrate how to knit the Icelandic Bind Off. This bind off illustrates a similar look to the garter stitch, making it a great finish to anything with a garter panel.

Step 1: Knit the first stitch

Step 2: Place that stitch back on the left hand needle

Step 3: Insert your right hand needle into the front of the first stitch on the left hand needle (the one you just knit and placed back on the left needle)

Step 4: Turn your right needle sharply and knit the front leg of the second stitch on your left hand needle. Be careful to only knit that second stitch!

Repeat steps 2-4 until you reach the end of the row.
