Finish off your knitting with this straightforward cast-off technique.
1 Start by knitting the first two stitches of the row as normal, but don’t go any further along as you usually would.
2 Insert the left-hand needle through the first stitch, as shown. Lift this stitch over the other stitch on the right-hand needle and over the needle point.
3 Knit another stitch so you have two on the right needle. Lift the first stitch over the second, then repeat steps 1–3.
4 When you get to the last stitch, cut the yarn about 15cm (6in) away, feed it through the loop and pull through firmly to fasten off.
