Break the yarn leaving the amount you've just calculated (ex: my neck warmer warns 70 cm wide so I left 210 cm when I cut the yarn). Thread the tapestry needle and then bind off using using the technique below:
Pass the needle in the fist two sts from right to left, pull the threads through.
Pass the needle through the first needle from left to right, pull the thread through. Slip the first stitch off the needle.
