    Hi Marly, I am knitting the Nomad Fair Isle sweater. I have completed the body of the sweater and have done the bind off. Actually, it looks bad. It is way stretchy and the pattern looks unattractive on the sweater.
    In the tutorial, you don’t show what the actual bind off looks like after completed. This is most disappointing after all the work that went into this otherwise beautiful sweater.

    I have looked at several tutorials and I am considering ripping this back to the actual 2X2 ribbing and doing a rigged bind off. The examples I see on YouTube look much better than this.

    Do you have any other suggestions before I do this?

    I appreciate anything you can tell me that helps this look beautiful.

    Thank you so much for the tutorials. I would never have been able to do this sweater without them. It is flawless, except for the bind off.
