Frustration! I have knit the ruffle scarf twice, watched two YouTube videos on how to do this. I can't find instructions on binding off. I have ripped out the scarf twice, and am half way through the third. They don't take long at all to knit. But, I am pleading and begging, how do I bind off and finish the darn scarf???

No, she meant knit 2 stitches, slip the first stitch you knitted over the second, knit one and repeat all the way to the end. When you have one stitch left on the needle, cut your yarn and thread the tail through the last loop and pull tight.

ok, I was leaving a tail so that I could finish it off like regular yarn - weaving in etc.. but, it is too bulky for that. I am going to give it a whirl. I knit all the time and have never really been tripped up by yarn before. kinda humbling!! thanks!

Hi, it is not possible to weave the end in - once i have threaded the tail through I cut the yarn down the middle and tie a neat knot and then sew wnds in a little. Hope that helps.

For added support and my own peace of mind I lightly tacked the end area with needle and thread.
Did'nt want the darn thing coming undone. Robin

On the first scarf I made I just took a little "tail" from the last bit of the yarn and ran in through the stitches on the needle then tied it off. On the next two I did a regular bind off then ran the tail through the last stitch and tied a knot. It's such a fluffy thing that the knots don't show. Now, what I don't know is whether the bind off will stand the test of time. Usually I let my son play with whatever I make for a while, figuring if it can come apart he can make it happen, but I gave away the three scarves I've made so far before I had the chance to give them the "Anthony test."

Yes, that is my fear. I finished the scarf last nite, bound off, cut the tail down the middle and tied a knot. Now, I will tack the end, actually both ends. Seems like a lot of finish work!

I've done 5 or 6 of these now and have no problems with the knots. 2 of the scarves have been used regularly by 8 year olds and no disasters in the last 3 - 4 months so I think it's pretty safe...... good luck
