How to do 3-Needle Bind Off to merge two sets of stitches into one.

This bind off is often used when you want to create a rolled hem at the bottom edge of a sweater (which I show here with the wrong sides of the fabric together). You could also bind off the new set of live stitches you create simultaneously to create a decorative line of stitches on the top of a shoulder, or, if you bind off on the inside (with right sides together), to close everything off neatly without seaming.

Good for: rolled hems, or, if you combine with Basic Bind Off, finishing shoulders and hoods, and closing hatbands.
