Some questions have come up on one of my forums about how to get rid of that ugly little step you get when you bind off after knitting in the round.
There's a really simple solution that takes just a few seconds. It's hard to explain in words but in pictures it's pretty easy.
Here you are at the end of binding off, with 1 stitch left on the needle. Since knitting in the round is really making a spiral, you're left with 1 side a row higher than the other.
Now you're left with this ugly step.
