I saw a way to bind off when knitting in the round so that where the circle joins together it is smooth. I can't remember where it was though. Does anyone know where I can find this? I think it was a video but I can't remember for sure. It wasn't knittinghelp.com
TIA,
Shelli

I don't know if this is what you saw, but it's how I do it and it looks nicer. After I bind off the last of my stitches, I knit into the next one (which is actually the first one I bound off) and bind off the extra stitch. That last one crosses over the beginning and makes it look neater.

I remember seeing a tip on Knitty Gritty where you take the tail, after binding off, and make a faux stitch, making a neater bind-off edge -- covering that 'gap'.  Clear as mud?

That's pretty much what I'm doing. I don't know if my directions are clear either.
