Hello folks, I thought I would ask this group what they are finding works best for binding off fingerless mitts and fingerless gloves - (at least for the patterns that are knit from the wrist- up)? Do you follow the pattern you are using at the time? Do you have another BO that you prefer? I would be interested in hearing what people use for their BO....
I have been making fingerless gloves (well, tipless gloves) and I 'm finding I like a BO in purl better than the regular knit BO. I think it looks better and it doesn't have a tendency to roll. I have also tried the Elizabeth Zimmerman Sewn BO because I read in her Opinionated Knitter book that it is suppose to roll less than a regular BO. I still like the Purl BO -- I find it easier than the EZ Sewn BO.
I made Fetching last year (before this KAL) and thought the Picot BO flared out too much so I redid the BO in the pattern (K4P1) but I'm finding that particular BO is rolling which I don't really like either ... Has anyone found a different BO for Fetching that they ended up really being satisfied with?
If you have an opinion on this subject please comment.... Thanks,
