This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the single crochet bind off. The Single Crochet Bind off (or Cast off) is a quick and simple way to finish a project with a crochet hook. It produces a solid, finished edge to your work similar to the Basic Knit Bind Off.
Step 1: Take your crochet hook and insert into the first stitch on your main needle.
RStep 2: Wrap your yarn over your crochet hook, going from under, to behind, and then over.
Step 3: Pull the yarn through your stitch with the crochet hook.
Step 4: Insert your crochet hook into the next stitch.
Step 5: Wrap the yarn over your crochet hook again.
Step 6: Pull the yarn through the stitch with your crochet hook. You should now have two stitches on your crochet hook.

Repeat Steps 4 – 7 until you have one stitch on your needle.
To finish your bind off, break your yarn and pull tight.
