Learn How to Knit: Grafting or Kitchener
If you ever wanted to learn how to knit the kitchener stitch (also known as grafting), this easy knitting guide from Love of Knitting is perfect for you. The art of grafting is mysterious to many knitters as it connects two sets of stitches together that are still live on the same needle by using a tapestry needle threaded together with yarn. The space between the knit stitches actually appears to be knit even though they weren’t truly “knit.” The kitchener stitch is quite useful for working on knitting projects and patterns that require connecting portions of knit garments. In this knitting example, you can see how stunning learning how to graft can be!
