How to do a tubular bind off

In this DROPS video we show how to do a tubular bind off.

Our sample is a knitted cuff in K1, P1 ribbing, but it would work the same way with a piece in stockinette stitch.
First you will knit 4 rows where half the sts are worked separate, and this is done by lifting all the P sts and knitting all the K sts. Work like this for 4 rows. Then we separate the sts by putting them on one needle each.
Once that is done make sure both needles are pointing towards the end of the working yarn, which is attached to the needle in the back. Now sew or knit kitchener sts aka grafting sts to join the two sides.
