SIMPLE STEPS KITCHENER STITCH
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.
