We are a worldwide company and our videos are watched by people around the world, speaking different languages, many of whom do not understand English.

We have therefore written instructions to accompany this video, and there is no sound to disturb while watching. Enjoy!

In this DROPS video we show one way to bind off with yarn over so that you get an elastic edge. We show both how we bind off over knit stitch and purl stitch. Knit the 1st stitch, make a yarn over, but an opposite yarn over (from back to front), knit the next stitch = 2 stitches + 1 yarn over on the right needle. With the left needle lift the yarn over and the 1st worked stitch over the last stitch = 1 stitch on the right needle. The next stitch is a purl stitch and work as follows: Make an ordinary yarn over, purl 1. Lift the yarn over and the 1st worked stitch over the last stitch = 1 stitch on the right needle. Make a new ordinary yarn over, purl 1. Lift the yarn over and the 1st worked stitch over the last stitch = 1 stitch on the right needle. Repeat the description above the entire row, with opposite yarn over when knitting and ordinary yarn over when purling. We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video.

Thank you! This will be perfect for binding/casting off for socks. I like the way you show ever step. I also like the silent video. Some spent 10 minutes describing everything, unnecessary talking. Love your videos. Just need a way to save all of them together.
