Happy Stitches

Keep your stitches smiling!

Technique Corner July 25, 2016

Grafting  (or kitchener stitch) is the art of invisibly joining two pieces of knitting together.  Many knitters struggle with grafting (and many others avoid even attempting it); however, as Lucy shows in this video, anyone can graft using her waste yarn method! So, even if grafting has defeated you in the past, why not watch this video and have another go.

In this first video we’ll look at grafting head to head (giving an imperfect join).

For more videos like this, see Lucy’s Grafting playlist.
