The Three Needle Bind-off Method:
Arrange stitches on needles, so both tips are pointing in the same direction. (Photo 1)
Hold the needles together with the right sides of the garment facing each other. This will create a seam on the wrong side of the garment. (Photo 2)
Insert a third needle into the front loop of the first stitch on both needles. (Photo 3)
Knit those two stitches together, and slide them off the left-hand needles. Repeat this step until there are 2 stitches on the right-hand needle.
Slip the first stitch on the right-hand needle over the second stitch to bind off one stitch. (Photo 4)
Continue across (Photo 5) until all stitches have been bound off.
Fasten off the last stitch by cutting the yarn and pulling the tail through the last loop.
