CASTING OFF this is the method most of us learn when we're just beginning! To make this chain cast-off we need 2sts on the right hand needle, so to begin knit the first stitch of the row/round, then knit the 2nd. Then, with the point of the left hand needle, gently lift the first stitch and pass it over the 2nd. As the stitch is passed over it creates the chain effect. Knit the next stitch on the left hand needle, and then pass the stitch over - you're always passing the stitch that sits to the right of the right hand needle over the stitch closest to the needle tip. When you get to the very last stitch, when there's only the one stitch left on your right hand needle and none on the left, simply pull the loop through for a lovely neat finish. Do note though, that if you're going to be picking up the stitches again (as per my last video) you'll want to break the yarn and pull that through the last remaining stitch, as that will ensure you have enough chains to pick up from (else you'll be one stitch short).
