The best way to graft your sock toes together

-

1

Arrange your stitches so that the ones for the top of the foot are on one needle, and those for the bottom of the foot are on the other, with both needle tips pointing to the right. Cut a 40cm (15 in) tail of yarn and thread onto a tapestry needle. 2

Using your needle, thread the tail purlwise through the first stitch on the front needle, and then knitwise through the first stitch on the back needle. *Thread tail knitwise through the first stitch on the front needle and drop o the needle. 3

Thread the tail purlwise through the new first stitch on the needle closest to you. Thread the tail purlwise through the first stitch on the needle furthest away from you and drop that stitch o the needle. 4

Thread the tail knitwise through the new first stitch on the needle furthest away from you. Repeat from * to Step 4 until you’ve worked all your toe stitches.
