Is picot bind off stretchy?
A picot bind off is a really cute way to add some girlish flair to an edge. While it does take more yarn and a little more time than usual to complete this bind off, it is really pretty and stretchy, making it a great choice for necklines on children’s clothing.
How much yarn does it take to bind off?
My rule of thumb is to leave 3 times the amount of yarn needed for a row for a regular bind off. JSSBO, I’ll go 4 times or more. So if you used 3.5 yards for a pair of rows, you will need 1.75 yards (half) times 3 or 5.25 yards or 7 yards if you need 4 times.
What is a lifted bind off in knitting?
I’ve sometimes seen this method referred to as lifted bind-off because that’s what you do: lift the stitches over one another. The standard bind-off is the one I use the most often if the bind-off row doesn’t have to be particularly stretchy.
