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.

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!
