We've all been there, super excited to finally bind off a project and that last stitch ruins it all! What do you do? Live with it, sew it down, undo and redo the bind off only to have it happen again? No worries, we're here to help! There is a super simple fix to this problem!
FIXING AN ELONGATED LAST STITCH
Here's the elongated stitch if I was binding off as usual. Not attractive! So how do we fix it?
If you look at the stitch in the first photo, you can see a small bump just underneath it. Pick it up with your left hand needle.
Add the last stitch to the left hand needle.
Knit them together. You know have two stitches on your right hand needle.
Bind them off as usual! Look, no more elongated stitch!
