Often asked: How To Graft Stitches Together In Knitting?

What is graft stitch?

Grafting, also known as Kitchener stitch or weaving, joins two sets of stitches that are still on the needle (a.k.a. “live”) by using a tapestry needle threaded with yarn to create a row that looks like knit stitches between them.

Is grafting the same as Kitchener Stitch?

It’s not magic! It’s called the Kitchener stitch. The Kitchener stitch (also known as “ grafting ”) involves weaving two live (still on the needle) edges together without creating a ridge — or even a break in the stitching.

What is a live stitch?

The Live Stitch to Bind Off Graft, as the name clearly suggests, is a seaming method that involves seaming one edge with live stitches and another with an edge of either bind off or cast on stitches.
