Finish off your knitting with this straightforward cast-off technique.
Start by knitting the first two stitches of the row as normal, but don’t go any further along as you usually would.
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.
Knit another stitch so you have two on the right needle. Lift the first stitch over the second, then repeat steps 1–3.
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.
