Three Needle Bind Off

The three needle bind off is really easy! You just need a third needle (or a crochet hook) and you’re good to go!

Here’s a video on how to work it:

You are knitting into the first stitch on each of your two needles, then working a basic bind off on your right hand needle as you go.

The keys with this bind off are:

  • You need the same number of stitches on both pieces
  • Don’t bind off too tightly, or too loosely

This bind off is a great one to use at shoulder seams, since it’s stable and sturdy, and can typically support the weight of the garment on those seams.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!!
