Holy crap, will wonders never cease? While I may have killed the Polar Bear Patterns store yesterday (seriously — I did. It's completely dead) — today I have managed to provide two free downloads to both of my readers!

Hey, we made it! This is the final post in the toe-up sock design series. And since it is the final one, naturally we are going to talk about binding off.
Sometimes, the little tricks are the best ones — simple yet effective. Here’s one that has cropped up a few times lately in various classes I’ve been teaching.
Actually, I posted this once before, a while ago — at the end of this post, which is way more than you ever wanted to know about binding off. But it’s a good tip, and since it’s kind of buried at the bottom of that post, I thought I’d bring it back out and let it see the light of day again.

Yes, you may well have been questioning why there is a total of 12 UFO's on my UFOlympic "decathlon" list. (Actually, there are 13, because I had to add one UFO #0 that I forgot about when making the original list.) But it's a good thing.
Binding off. Well, there’s not a whole lot to say about that, is there? I mean, you’re done knitting, you bind off, right?
Pshaw! Of course not!
While I don’t think quite as many techniques exist for binding off as casting on, there are quite a few. And the CO and BO edges can make or break an otherwise lovely project: the main issue being edges that are too tight, and that affect the shape of the finished piece.
