Putting in some work on the picot bind-off.
- To get started, use the cable cast-on technique to create two new stitches.
- Remove four stitches by tying a knot and casting them off. Make use of the standard over-the-needle bind-off that you are familiar to doing, which entails knitting two stitches and passing the right stitch (as you face it) over the needle
- Put the very last stitch, which should be the fifth one in the series of bind-offs, back onto the left needle. It should be worked purlwise
- Because the picot bind-off necessitates that you start a new row with two stitches for every two that you are binding off (start a new row with two stitches, then bind off those two stitches and the two that follow), you
- You don’t want to pull the threads too tightly as you proceed, but there should be a space between the second and third bind-off stitch
How do you bind off a picot stitch?
In order to begin creating a picot bind off, the first thing you will need to do is cast on the required amount of stitches at the front of the needle that already has stitches on it. The cable cast on, which is comparable to the knit cast on but produces a cabled appearance, is a straightforward method that may be used to quickly achieve this goal.

How much yarn do I need for a Picot bind-off?
You will need around 15 times as much yarn as the width of your project in order to do a standard picot bind-off with two stitches. If you knit larger picots and decrease the space in between, this number will shift dramatically in the opposite direction.
