Surprising. And Stretchy.

Calling all toe-up sock knitters – there’s a new bind-off in sockville that rocks so insanely hard, I can’t even believe it. As many of you know, I am a confirmed toe-upper. Cuff-down socks, to me, make no sense. They make so little sense, in fact, that of the roughly 30 pairs of adult socks I have made in 2008 and 2009, two pairs have been cuff down. TWO. And like many toe-up sock knitter, I have struggled to find the perfect cast off. It needs to be firm enough that the top of your sock isn’t all floppity, but stretchy enough that it can be comfortably pulled on and tugged off. I have used many a bind-off, but there wasn’t one that filled me with joy until the new Knitty came out, and Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off was made public.

It looks fabulous – no puckering, no weirdness. It’s easy to do, once you have the rhythm. It’s quick. It’s stretchy. It’s surprising. Try it yourself on the next project you bind off. You’ll be hooked, too.
