What to do if your bind-off is too tight:

Some people find that their basic bind-off is too tight, making the bind-off edge too short and stiff, and possibly puckered. There are a number of tricks and alternate methods to achieve a looser bind off.

Of course, relaxing a little and trying to work more loosely is the first thing to try to correct the problem of a too-tight bind off. But, relaxing and trying to work more loosely isn’t always enough. Using a larger needle to bind-off often does the trick!
