How to Knit the Lacey Bind Off

The lacy bind of is a super cute and easy way for you to bind off on your knitting projects. The lacy bind off is the perfect bind off technique for patterns that you want to be a little bit stretchier. In fact, this bind off is stretchy enough that we really only recommend it for patterns that have a wider gauge (such as lace knitting patterns) or for projects that you want to have a little bit of a wider bind off to stretch the fabric horizontally.

If you've been looking for new ways to bind off your knitting projects, or you're just trying to figure out how to bind off your projects in general, this is a great way for you to learn. This video tutorial breaks down just how easy and manageable the lacy bind off technique is!
