Truth: The suspended bind-off is a game changer.

I’d always heard about the suspended bind-off, a stretchier variation of a basic bind-off, but I’d never tried it.

If you're looking for a go-to circular needle, look no further.

I AM A CONVERT. This tutorial by Bella Knitting is an excellent explanation. (I like that she named one of the stitches Fred.) The resulting bind-off is indeed stretchy, flexible, and for some reason super-uniform. Outstanding!


  • This was the first bind-off I learned at my mother’s (and grandmother’s) knee almost 60 years ago. It’s still my default though I’ve since learned many, many others. Thanks Mom and Nana!

  • Would you please tell us the stitch above the bind off rows.

    • Is it the same stitch as is in The Perky Liitle Hat on Rav? It looks similar.

      • It looks like it to me. I made that hat and was so disappointed in the way it turned out, after the hat section, above the border, caved in when I tried it on.
        Dud you have better luck?

    • Oh golly, Kay, I’m embarrassed to say I don’t even remember what that pattern is! If I think of it, I will definitely let you know. It’s going to require forensic work to figure that out!

      • Thanks for responding. Happy knitting!
