Crochet bindoffs

Crochet bind-offs can be used in place of knitted bind-offs. One advantage is that you can control the tension of your bindoff by how tightly you wrap the yarn. You can also change the tension by using a larger or smaller crochet hook. If you use a hook size that is comparable to your needle size, you will have a looser bindoff. (The Susan Bates Knit-Chek has hook sizes listed opposite the needle size.)
