Knitting Tip

The last stitch of my bind off row used to always be large and loopy. If you're having the same problem, try this:

When you knit the last stitch of the bind-off row, stick your needle into the stitch BELOW the final stitch, then knit it. Pass the previous stitch over this last stitch. That last stitch will now be nice and pretty.

I can't remember where I got this tip from, but it has helped me tremendously, especially when seaming. My seams would always pull apart at this stitch.

You have any tips to share with me? C'mon, spill it.
