Three-Needle Bind-Off

This method is used to join two pieces that have not been bound off. The pieces to be joined should have the same number of stitches.


Three-Needle Bind-Off

1. Start with the pieces on separate needles. Hold the needles in the left hand, with the right sides together. The needles should point to the right.
