Here is a link, if you scroll to the end it tells you how to bind off this yarn

http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW2517.pdf

FINISHING
Bind off loosely, drawing the end of the Sashay through
the last bound off stitch. Trim leaving a 4”end. To finish the
ends, fold under the corner and tack to inside with sewing
needle and thread.

hope this helps, I have not tried using this yarn.


here's another link that tells you how to finish off the scarf

i was hoping for a nice finish in stead of having a big piece of this weird yarn hanging there
so sewing is what i have to do

I think they tuck it under flat and then sew it in place. I have some of that yarn but haven't tried using it yet. I didn't think you would be able to bind it off like you would with other yarn since it is very wide.

Hope it works out if you fold it under flat and then sew it. Sorry I could be of more help.

I left about a 6" tail, made it into a ball and secured the ball with embroidery thread and needle. This gives a little weight to make your scarf hang straight.

I asked at my LYS when there on Sat. and they did the same I did on my first scarf with it. Bind off the stitches as usual and then cut leaving a 4" piece. That is then tied in a knot as close to the scarf as possible and then cut the tail off. It is hidden in the last ruffle and stays secure. Unusual to think about but what the pros say works best. Hope it helps. Odd that none of the patterns written for any of this type of yarn has specific directions on binding off anf more important, finishing the last piece.

i agree with you, and red heart has a bind on vedio but no bind off vedio it just does not fell right to tie a knot and stuff it in.

I bind it off with my usual bind off. Then tie a knoe as close to the knitting as possible. I then cut it leaving enough to fold around the knot, then stitch it in place with needle and thread, The ruffles hide the knot, and I don't have to worry about the knot coming undone.

I find that I don't have to sew the end. Maybe I should?
