3 Needle Cast Off Tutorial

As you know, I’ve been working on a new pattern called Pickles the Cat, one of the cast off techniques for Pickles is a 3 needle bind / cast off, so I thought I would share a tutorial here and also link to it from the pattern.

I have turned the work inside out and checked that I have the same even amount of stitches on each needle.

When starting, place the right needle through the first stitch on both needles and knit them together ending up with 1 stitch on the right needle as you can see in the above photo.

Then again place the right needle through the first stitch on both needles.

Knit those 2 stitches together and now there will be a second stitch on the right needle.

Two stitches on the right needle now.

Then using the left needle, pass the back stitch over the front stitch on the right needle and 1 stitch will remain.

Continue knitting the first stitch on both needles together on the 2 left needles and passing the back stitch over the front stitch on the right needle until you come to the end of the knitting.

At the end of the knitting just pass the back stitch over the front stitch and thread the yarn through the remaining loop to finish off.

The end,

Happy Knitting!

    Wow, what a tutorial. It looks sooo complicated. Then again I can’t knit.

    I love it when you teach. Here’s the astonishing thing (to me): I have not made a single thing in over six months. I’m deep into genealogical research now, and it’s as if I never lifted a needle in my life. How does this happen? It’s like jumping from one boat going happily down river to another fighting its way upstream – I almost have whiplash from the change. At least I have you and Linda and a few other friends who can remind me of that part of who I am -
