Cat Bordhi-PERSONAL FOOTPRINTS-Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off


Thanks to Jeny Staiman, the knitting world now has a bind off stretchy enough to suit any situation. If you’ve avoided toe-up socks or trembled as you bound off necklines (wondering if your head would make it through), fear no more. Jeny’s ingenious technique will solve your problems forever. Her bungee-cord-like bind-off even hinges at the knit and purl changes, to thrill the perfectionist in you.

    This is my third time using this bind off on an infinity scarf. I LOVE it! Thanks again to Cat and Jeny!

  2. mhorsesbiz:

    And just used this method again for a bell sleeve cuff, in lieu of a «loose BO». Perfect on all counts!!!

  3. mhorsesbiz:

    The BEST stretchy bind off eVAR! Just finished a pair of socks, tried them on, WoW!

  4. GrumpyGramma:

    Wow. Talk about making something easy, you did. Thanks. I just finished off a pair of socks using this tecnique.

  5. 60lollie:

    Thanks you! I have been looking for a truly stretchy bind off and this is it! I using it right now on an infinity scarf I knitted for my daughter. You and Jeny ROCK!

  6. kimber1e699:

    Thanks so much! I am making the swirl sweater pattern from the book you wrote and this made it perfectly clear how to do the JSSBO. I adore your book and making the sweater is so much fun!

    Brilliant! I needed some way to bind off the band of a hat. It was nice stretchy ribbing, but the bindoff would not fit over the head. This technique was perfect. Thank you.

    Hi, Cat! I gotta say, this very quickly became my favorite all-purpose bind-off. I’ve found that using a crochet hook in place of the right-hand needle makes it faster, easier, and more even—especially when you’re BO’ing 900 stitches on a shawl edge!

    Thanks for the video! You and Jeny rock. 🙂

  9. grandmastatus:

    Thank you for this video! I did manage to figure it out, though I am not a continental knitter. The purl one was harder for me, but when I did figure it out I found that I’m doing the knit ones in continental style. I’d like to learn to do it throwing because it’s a pain to switch back and forth. Thank you again!

  10. sazji:

    This really is a great bind-off! Still, if I may be so presumptuous as to offer advice on anything Cat Bordhi does:

    1) If you’re doing it for the first time, and especially if you’re also going to use it on a project knitted in thin and not-so-stretchy sock yarn, practice it on a separate piece first. You’ll be glad you did!

    2) If you’re a generally a tight knitter, now is the time to loosen up a little; it will make that pass over a lot easier, especially on the knit stitches.

  11. whosails:

    Thanks Cat! You have made my life a bit better.

  12. omandy17:

    Do you have any idea how wonderful you are!! lol! I LOVE all of your videos! Without you, i would not be a addicted knitter!! Thank you so much! I am doing Melissa Morgan Oaks two at a time toe up socks right now and was trying to figure out how to make them stretchy for my youngest daughter…this is perfect!!!!! Love you Cat!

  13. angoraacres:

    Thank you so much for this demo Cat! I just finished using it for my toe up sock on two circulars. What a clean finish! And thank you for that lovely last stitch. Very exciting to get such good results on the finish.

    Best thing about this video is the last trick! I love this finish, it’s smooth and seamless. Thank you so much for adding it! :’)

  15. BeStrixed:

    I totally agree with this: I’ve gradually decreased the number of stitches for my socks — regardless of what patterns say or what swatching dictates! — from 64 sts to, now, 56! That, plus taking into consideration the yarn which is always different no matter what the label…blah, blah blah/whine whine whine :^)

    Rally your USA naughty women here

  18. jturnrich:

    Thanks! Works great for my dogs’ sweaters. Makes it easy to put a sweater on a squirmy dog who’s in a hurry to get out the door! 🙂

  19. janeta67:

    @TheKnitternut I agree. I forgot to mention the little tidbit. I have been oversewing because I’m afraid that it will come undone. I get it now, finally.

  20. janeta67:

    Again, Thankyou Cat. I have been doing a stretchy bind off but didn’t do the purl stitch. It looks quite nice and is stretchy but from now on I will use this method.
    Another thing, I haven’t understood which way the yarn overs go. Thankyou, thankyou, I finally get it. As usual Cat a truly wonderful video.

  21. Nicky35747:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is just what I’ve been looking for!

  22. mkaazedler:

    Whoa!! Slow down!! Way too fast and I HATE having to pause and go back like a million times trying to follow along.

  23. openbook1901:

    Could you do this with lace or does it have to be a rib to work properly?

  24. TheKnitternut:

    This is awesome! I love the last little tidbit about how to end the cast off. I have always hated that last stitch, now I’m good!

    I so needed this to finish a beanie!
