How to bind off and decrease at the same time

In this DROPS video we show how to bind off and decrease at the same time.

When you knit cables you add more sts than if you would be working in stockinette. The cables are pulling the piece together. When you bind off above a cable it is a good idea to decrease the cable sts at the same time as you bind off. Otherwise the bind off edge will make for example the neck or shoulders wider than supposed to be.

In this video we decrease 4 sts - by K2 tog twice above each cable - at the same time as we bind off following the pattern.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns using this technique by clicking on the pictures below.
