In this DROPS video we show how you can bind off loosely using a crochet hook. This makes an elastic edge on your knitted piece.
Bind off as follows: Slip crochet hook through the first st and pull thread through (leave st on needle), make 1 YO and pull through loop on hook, slip crochet hook through the same st again, pull thread through st and through loop on hook, let the st off the needle, slip crochet hook through next st (leave st on needle), pull thread through st and through loop on hook, slip crochet hook through the same st again, pull thread through st and through loop on hook = 2 sl sts in st, let st off the needle.
Continue like this with 2 sl sts in each st until all sts have been bound off.
In this DROPS video we show how you can knit Fair Isle (2 colour knitting) using the US/UK method.
In this video we are following a chart back and forth on needles, knitting with two colors. The color that not is knitted is following behind the work when knitting RS rows. Make sure it's not too tight or too loose. If more than 3 sts in a row of one of the colors, then twist the yarns for every 3 sts.
When working WS rows have the yarn following in front of work, again make sure you have the right tension on the thread. Note - if a color not is used all the way at the end of the row, you can drop it, but if it will be used at the beginning of the next row, then keep carry it a long by twisting around the working yarn. Don't worry if it's a bit uneven, it will even out a lot when blocking.
