Knit two stitches as if to begin a new row.

Slide the tip of the left-hand needle into the outer stitch (Figure 1), pull it up and over the inner stitch, and drop it off the needle.

This leaves one stitch on the right (Figure 2). Knit another stitch, then drop the outer stitch as before.

When one stitch remains, cut the fiber to tail length, enlarge the stitch slightly, and remove the needle. Pass the tail through the stitch, and gently pull to tighten
(Figure 3). Use a tapestry needle to weave the tail neatly in and out of several stitches. Trim the tail close to the knitting.
