Re: Less bulky gather bind off
- That is how I do all my hats that I make on the K.K. even the red one that had an odd number of pegs. just take the stitch thats on 5 to 6 and then the one from 7 back to 6 etc. thats the only one thats done that way the rest is 1 to 2 3 to 4 etc. It works for me....... been doing it for years....
it is not necessary to take 5,6,7, you can do it anywhere you want....

Pull extremely tight and hold while you make a stitch back and forth across the "hole" then when finished cut the thread and insert your fist/fingers into the top of the cap and shape working out some of the bulkiness. When it is placed on the head it will straighten out even more. Hope this helps.
