CAST OFF:
Casting off secures the stitches when a piece of knitting is complete, linking them together so they cannot unravel. Casting off is normally done following the stitch sequence, so a knit stitch is cast off knitwise and a purl stitch purlwise 🙂
The last row was working in KNIT so we will be casting off knitwise!
