Neaten the last bind off stitch


Often the last bind off stitch looks sloppy.  No worries, you can easily neaten up that last stitch.

Work until there is just one stitch left to bind off.
Slip the last stitch to the right needle.
With the left needle, pull up the stitch in the row below from the back and keep on the left needle.
Slip the last bind off stitch back to the left needle, then knit it together with the stitch pulled up from below.
Pass the stitch over as normal, cut the tail and pull through last stitch.
Give the tail a gentle tug to snug things up.

No more sloppy bind off.
