I’m still knitting away steadily on the Baby Dale Yoke Sweater for my great-niece. I only have a couple weeks to finish it before her first birthday arrives. I think I will make it. I’m binding off the bottom ribbing this afternoon.
I will be using a traditional bind off, also known as a “pullover bind off.” I’m keeping to the pattern stitch and using a needle one size larger in the my right hand. I’m doing this to help me bind off loosely.
I have a ribbing bind off question for all you sweater knitters –
When you bind off a bottom ribbing do you knit all the stitches passing them over in a traditional bind off?
Or, do you keep in the knit one, purl one ribbing pattern passing the stitches over accordingly?
