Knitting - Basic Techniques
After finishing the last row of a knitted piece, you need to bind off the stitches remaining on the needle. There are various methods for binding off (taking the stitches off one by one so that the fabric will not unravel). This can be done with a yarn needle, a crochet hook, or knitting needles. This chapter also contains instructions for picking up stitches to work edging and two common techniques for joining pieces together—stitch to stitch (grafting) or row to row (seaming).
