Fin­ish off your knit­ting with this straight­for­ward cast-off tech­nique.

Simply Knitting - - How To Knit -

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.
