    I think your website is amazing. I am learning from you every day! If I were to knit the two color bee stitch in the round would I pearl every even row?

    What bind off method would you recommend to complete a blanket made with this stitch and knitted very loosely? The basic bind off seems too tight no matter how loose I try to make it.
