Kitchener stitch is one of those strange things were you either love it or you hate it. I am one of the strange people who love it. I can’t get enough of Kitchener stitches; it gives me a great sense of satisfaction to finish a pair of socks and graft the toe together like it is nothing.
In order to convert as many people as I can, I managed to dig up this video on the knitted kitchener stitch. There is method to my madness, I promise. There is never only one single way to do something and at times, it can make it easier to learn a technique if you simply see it done another way.
This technique is not just for socks, but for a lot of other things as well! The underarms of sweaters usually need to be grafted together, in Elizabeth Zimmerman’s seamless hybrid sweater you have to graft part of the shoulder together. It is an extremely useful skill to hone and it makes you look really cool in front of all your knitter friends.
My name is Michelle and I highly endorse the kitchener stitch!
