Bind-off tip

Here is a tip for you from our friends at Skein, a LYS in Pasadena, CA. If you are having trouble with your bind-off not being stretchy enough, here's what you can do: begin binding off as usual. Every few stitches, rather than collecting two stitches on your right needle and passing one over the other, do a yarn-over while there is one stitch on the right needle and pass the worked stitch over the yarn-over. This creates an extra stitch in the chain and makes for a stretchier edge.
