How to End Knitting

How to end knitting? End knitting by casting off to displace the work off the needles.

How to end knitting? To end knitting you must cast off. This procedure shifts the work from the needles. The finished border must not disentangle.

Cast off when the last row is finished. Slide the first stitch onto the right needle.

Knit the second stitch.

At the moment there are two stitches on the right needle. Know how to end knitting with two stitches. Raise the first stitch over the second stitch and pull it off the needle. Use the left needle to take hold of and pull the first stitch up and over the second stitch as well as over the tip of the right needle.

Go on knitting or purling the next stitch and repeating the action until there are no stitches on the left needle and one stitch remains on the right needle.

Slide the last stitch off the right needle and cut the yarn leaving 2 inches to weave back and avoid unraveling.

Utilize a sewing needle or crochet hook to fix the free end with stitches.


  • Casting off is better understood with practice.
