Tubular Bind Off

September 20, 2011By Andi

The Tubular Bind Off is pretty much identical to the Tubular Cast On, so it wasn’t surprising that I had similar problems with it. My 2 inch swatch stretched to 4.5 inches, but it didn’t snap back. That’s an obnoxious feature of the Tubular BO, but it does have its perks. It is a very … Read More
