New Cast Off Technique-Sewn Cast Off

I'm finishing up the Little Sister's dress I started back in August. The photo above is from the free pattern which you will find on the Knittingalot blog. The pattern calls for using Elizabeth Zimmerman's sewn cast off which I had never done. I found these easy instructions.

Here's a Knitty post that gives you multiple options for binding off including the sewn cast off which is particularly good when you need a stretchy, flexible edge, like on the bottom of this little dress.

And here's a You-tube video showing the technique:

Watch soon for a picture of my finished Little Sister Dress.
