Surprisingly Stretchy Redux

Regular readers of this blog (um, are there any regular readers left, at this point?) know how much I love Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off, AKA the JSSBO.

The lovely Jeny has now come up with another surprisingly stretchy bind-off, which looks a bit different (she calls it invisible) from the JSSBO. She calls it the Interlock Bind-off. It’s in the latest edition of, one of my favorite knitting resources evah.

Fair warning: it’s a sewn bind-off, but if the look is what you want along with the stretch, that’s worth getting out the tapestry needle, isn’t it?

      I’m sorry if I was going too fast for you. For this bind off method: Knit sitechts #1 and #2, and slip #1 over #2 (you should now have one stitch on the right hand needle.) Knit stitch #3, and then slip #2 over number 3 and repeat. Good luck and happy knitting!

      Hi Tacy! Of course I remember you! Life is indeed incredibly crazy at the moment. Some of it’s good and some of it is meh, but Time is indeed a river that keeps rolling (how’s that for a lot of cliches all in one place?), so sooner or later this too shall pass. And hopefully, I’ll get back to the knitting blog soon. (Which calls to me every time I see something I want to pass on!)
