A heddle is part of a weaving loom. The stitch pattern used looks like a woven fabric, but it’s created using knit, purl and basic lace eyelets. Heddle is a very simple top-down shawlette that’s modular. In other words, the pattern repeat can be worked any number of times, so you can work the pattern to the length that your yarn quantity will stretch to. With a picot cast-off for that special finishing touch.

There are both images and a video tutorial for the bind-off.
