With the Icelandic Bind Off you are creating a stretchy bind-off that works nicely on the edge of garter stitch. It curls towards the front of the work, creating almost a reverse I-Cord effect.
- To work this bind off, knit the first stitch the slip it back from the right to the left needle.
- Now put the left needle through the first stitch (from right to left) and knit into the second stitch on the needle.
- Slip both original stitches off the left needle and put the new stitch on the right needle onto the left needle.
- Repeat from step 2 until all of the stitches have been bound off.
