Kitchener Stitch

Kitchener stitch is a great way to invisibly graft two pieces of knitting together such as when working the toe of socks.
Take a look at this Video, except I’ll make these suggestions:
Please do not use a plastic needle- they bend. Use a proper metal seaming needle.
Please leave your working yarn 3-4 times the width of the work to be seamed- not 2-3 times as this video indicates.
Until you get really good at it, choose a quiet, well lit place to work kitchener stitch.
Lastly, I suggest you download Eileen’s & JoAnne’s famous cheat sheet
a super fast way to remind yourself about Kitchener Stitch. Good luck!
