How to do a Bound Off Hem for Top-Down Knitting

When knitting a garment from the top down, a bound-off hem may be just the right hem if you prefer knitting to sewing. It is similar to the 3-needle bind off where you knit together the live stitches with a strand from the back of your fabric as you bind off. Note that the Bound-Off Hem will be bulkier than a sewn bind-off. Be careful to bind off loosely so your hem has enough stretch.
