Kitch­ener stitch is a won­der­ful fin­ish­ing method to mas­ter be­cause it leaves you with an in­vis­i­ble, smooth seam. This is par­tic­u­larly ef­fec­tive when mak­ing socks where heels seams may rub, or when work­ing with very bulky yarns that of­ten cre­ate a thick ridge once sewn to­gether. Fol­low our tu­to­rial here and with a lit­tle prac­tice we’re sure you’ll have Kitch­ener stitch sorted in no time! 1 Ar­range your nee­dles so that when the purl sides are fac­ing each other, the nee­dle tips are on the right. Break yarn, leav­ing a 30cm tail. 2 Us­ing a threaded tapestry nee­dle for the yarn tail, go through the first stitch on the front nee­dle as if to knit. Pull stitch off nee­dle. 3 Still on the front nee­dle, go through the new first stitch as if to purl. Do not pull the stitch off the nee­dle.
