Sarah Veblen has a wonderful video showing how to apply varying amounts of stretch to a neckline binding when sewing it onto the garment with a sewing machine. http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/3839/video-a-neckline-binding-for-knits

How can you accomplish the varying amounts of stretch in the binding when using a binder attachment on a Janome CoverPro serger? Is it a matter of holding the binding back or changing the differential at different parts of the neckline?

The binders themselves do most of the work, unlike when sewing the binding manually, so for the most part there is no need for any extra "work" to apply the binding. Between the binders and the differential feed it's all done for you. You can help it along yourself if you like using a tailor's awl and pushing the binding along inside the channel, say on the straight parts of a neckline. This releases some of the stretch so you have less stretch on the straight bits and more stretch on the curves but mostly it's not necessary.

When I'm using my binder I hold the strip in the right hand instead of putting it though the loops on the side of the binder. I can then control the amount of stretch in the binding. It takes a bit of practice but does give better results.
