Holy cow, we’re nearly there! Today marks the last tutorial day of the Funkasonic Knit Along, so of course today is all about the bind off. Would you believe that I, who have been knitting since childhood, had never used a kitchener stitch (a.k.a. grafting) bind off mittens and socks before these projects? I could kick myself – the knits finished with kitchener stitch are so elegant and professional looking!
How to Bind Off with Kitchener Stitch
This method of finishing a project results in a seamless finished look, despite being seamed. Using the kitchener stitch to finish cuff down mittens and socks is particularly excellent because the finished result isn’t lumpy, which is great to avoid discomfort on sensitive fingers and toes that lumpy finishes can cause.
Wrapping up the Funkasonic Knit Along
You’ve got a full week left to finish up your Funkasonic patterns. If you’d like to be included in my wrap-up post on Monday, remember to share your finished objects on Instagram with #funkasonicKAL or in the Funkasonic Knit Along Ravelry thread. I’d love to share as many FOs as possible next week! :D
