Bind Off Teachers info

BIND OFF TEACHER INFO
For everyone to try the bind off you are teaching, they need a swatch of knitting either on needles or on stitch holders. If your bind off requires a specific swatch, please let Teresa know so we can get the details added to a supply list. For example, should there be an odd or even number of stitches, stockinette, garter, or P1 K1 ribbing?

During your presentation, please share the answers to the following two questions:
1. When should the bind off be used? For example, a bind off used for toe-up socks that provides a finished edge.
2. Are there any disadvantages or advantages to using the bind off?

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR TALENTS WITH THE GROUP!
