Kirchener Options – 3 Needle Bind Off

Although Kitchener is by far the best sock bind off I’ve found, there are options that work pretty darn well. My fave is the three needle bind off – it makes a great seam and is typically used for shoulders, seams, etc. Why not toes?!

Basically, you’re doing a pretty normal bind off, just with three needles instead of two. Think of it as sewing the seam shut with the third needle and it’s pretty easy.

I have no idea why I didn’t think of this the other day when I was grafting toes at work. It would have been a whole lot simpler!
