Loom Knit No Stretch Bind Off

Loom Knit No Stretch Bind Off

The casting off technique for the flat looms has to be carefully considered. This is binding off with no stretch.

While this technique is handy, it can ruin your project if the project has some stretch to it. In the scarf example here, a stretchy bind off would have been better. We have a tutorial for casting off with stretch as well.

I think it’s handy to know both. For this method, you will transfer one side of pegs and overlap. Knit them together. Then do the bind off. You can see how it’s done in the tutorial. Easy to do.

I have included the stretchy cast off below as well so you can cross compare on what you prefer to do.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
