Kitch­ener Stitch

Creative Knitting - - KNITTING SCHOOL -

This method of graft­ing the stitches on two nee­dles to­gether is used for the toes of socks and flat seams. To graft the edges to­gether and form an un­bro­ken line of stock­inette stitch, di­vide all stitches evenly onto two knit­ting nee­dles—one be­hind the other. Thread yarn into ta­pes­try nee­dle. Hold nee­dles with wrong sides to­gether and work from right to left as fol­lows: Step 1: In­sert ta­pes­try nee­dle into first stitch on front nee­dle as to purl. Draw yarn through stitch, leav­ing stitch on knit­ting nee­dle. Step 2: In­sert ta­pes­try nee­dle into the first stitch on the back nee­dle as to purl. Draw yarn through stitch and slip stitch off knit­ting nee­dle. Step 3: In­sert ta­pes­try nee­dle into the next stitch on same (back) nee­dle as to knit, leav­ing stitch on knit­ting nee­dle. Step 4: In­sert ta­pes­try nee­dle into the first stitch on the front nee­dle as to knit. Draw yarn through stitch and slip stitch off knit­ting nee­dle. Step 5: In­sert ta­pes­try nee­dle into the next stitch on same (front) nee­dle as to purl. Draw yarn through stitch, leav­ing stitch on knit­ting nee­dle.

Re­peat Steps 2 through 5 un­til one stitch is left on each nee­dle. Then re­peat Steps 2 and 4. Fas­ten off. Grafted stitches should be the same size as ad­ja­cent knit­ted stitches.
