Decorative Bind Off

Toe up socks have many advantages, one is the nicely shaped

toes and the fit as you go contructon.  Cuff down socks have

advantage of a tidy, stretchy cuff.  The design in the photo

above is worked from the toe to just before the cuff, and the

cuff is worked separately; then the cuff is attached to the main

sock with combination 3-needle and frilled bind off.

To accomplish this, the cuff section and the main sock section

are put wrong sides together and one stitch is knit alternately

from the main sock and the cuff and bound off at the same

time.  This results in a nice looking edge that is decorative

and gives you the best of both worlds; toe up and cuff down

with a nice decorative edge.

3-needle bind off alone would give a definite chopped look.
