4: Ends & Knots (cont.)

Some people make a knot after casting off. This is unnecessary and is a problem when joining. All that is needed when casting off is to cut a long thread and then gently pull the stitch with a needle until the end comes through the last loop. The casting off is secure without being knotted [pic 9].

9: Left sample: loop at end of cast off. Right sample: end pulled through last cast-off stitch.

Declare a war on ends and knots!
