Some nice demonstrations on YouTube. The web is just wonderful for knitters, we have a huge community and may I say generous "I want to share this with you" kind of knitters. I love this when I'm trying to figure out some knitting puzzle I go surfing around and it always inspires me.
The dilemma is this, what bind off should I use for the bottom of my 7/11 Gypsy Sweater? If you can just imagine this steam blocked which will add to the length I think it's time to bind off. I took the stitches off the needles and tried it on so far so good. I've made the back just a few rows longer because all my sweaters turn out too short in the back. This is one of my pet peeves' I'm always looking at how sweaters fit people and often I see the back too short. Then I got a "rear view" mirror and realized that MY sweaters are too short in the back too. Now I always add a few rows to compensate for this mystery.
or this one which is not really a bind off but an iCord border:
