bind-off

Everything needs to end at some point. When you are knitting there are several ways to finish the garment.

1. You can simply knit one stitch, then the next, then pass over the first. You knit the next stitch and again pass over the one before. Continue until there is only one stitch left, cut the yarn and pass it through the last loop. Done!

2. Slip the first stich, knit another stitch, and now comes the strange part: Insert the LEFT needle into the front of both stitches left to right, wrap the yarn around your RIGHT needle and knit them together through their back loops. Knit the next stitch and repeat "the strange part" until there is only one stitch left. Cut the yarn and pass it through the last loop. Done!
