I have started finishing my edges with this: Double Knit Bind Off

I knit first stitch, then move to right needle.
Insert left needle into front of said stitch and knit again.

Do the same for the next stitch.
Pass the first stitch over the second to start the BO.

Continue "double knitting" each stitch and passing the first stitch over until bind off is complete.

This may be a standard way that everyone knows about... but I got the idea from a double crochet. If it has a name already I'm not aware of it. I just call it my Double Knit Bind Off. It's loose and soft and stretchable.

Thanks I bookmarked this one to give it a try. I am curious would this type of bind off be stretchy?

Sounds perfect (stretchy) for toe up socks. Thanks

For extra stretch, work purls instead of knits. The purl angle-of-attack makes everything looser and it's a very stretchy bindoff for lace shawls.

I don't think it has a name. "Laminaria" was the first time I ran across it.

Congrats for inventing the knitwise version!

If you are ribbing, do you do the bind off in knit and purl or do you just knit?
