Pli-cord: how to cast off

Just in case anyone is out there with three miles of Pli-cord dangling off the end of a pair of pliers and wondering what to do next, here’s how to cast off. You may now breathe a big sigh of relief. Altogether: Phew!

Right. Here’s where you start. Or finish, I guess. Let’s assume you’ve just slung a loop over the right arm of your Pli-cord pliers and pulled the yarn to tighten it up. Like this:

Next step’s easy. Ready?

Snip!

Now take the end of the yarn and feed it up through the loop on the right arm of the pliers. Like this:
