Russian Bind-Off Tutorial

I use the Russian Bind-Off (at least, that's what I'm calling it) in my newest design, Tempest Shawlette, and thought you'd appreciate a brief photo tutorial on how it is done....

Step 1: With the right side facing, purl 2 stitches together through the back loop (p2tog-tbl).
Step 2: That leaves one stitch on the right needle.
Step 3: Slip the last stitch back over to the left needle.
Repeat Steps 1-3! Easy!
When you get to the last two stitches, purl them together through the back loop. Then, cut your yarn and pull the tail of your yarn through the stitch.

You end up with a lovely, stretchy bind-off with a hint of eyelets. Enjoy!
