How to Bind Off Stitches in Eastern (Russian) Knitting

How to Bind Off Stitches in Russian Knitting

We already know how to cast on, knit and purl stitches using the Eastern (previously called Russian) knitting style. Now, let’s see how we can bind off stitches when the knitted piece is finished.

Like most techniques in Eastern knitting, binding off stitches is a very simple process. There are only two steps and they are so easy that even absolute beginners will feel confident repeating them. No struggling with the needles when we pass one stitch over the other!

This technique forms a bind off edge that looks exactly like an edge formed by the regular bind off in classic knitting, but the process of binding off stitches is so much easier in Eastern knitting.

You’ll see for yourself when you watch this video tutorial.
