  • KTBL + K1 – K2 together through the back loop, put the two stitches from the right hand needles onto the left hand needle and K2 together through the back loop. Put this stitch back on the needle and K1. Put the two stitches from the right hand needles onto the left hand needle and K2 together through the back loop Repeat until the end.
  • Peggy’s Stretchy Bind Off – If you are knitting a K1, P1 ribbing, on the row before the bind-off row: K1, M1 (“make one” by making a half-hitch loop), pull the M1 tight, P1.
    Repeat around.
    Bind off row (go up a needle size or two): K1, slip the M1, pass the K1 over the slipped M1, P1, pass the slipped M1 over the P1, K1, pass the P1 over, etc. as for a regular bind off.
