Can anyone advise me how to accomplish this? I know I must have the identical stitches on both needles before I begin so that the Kitchener stitch has to "fit" between them with the opposite stitch. Fortunately it is only nine stitches in bulky yarn that I have to accomplish this hurdle.
I would like to know how to do that too! Shirley
Can't help you with that, I've just finally figured out how to do the Kitchener stitch with stocking stitch. What would happen if you knit a row of plain knit stitches before you did the joining, would it show up too much?
That is what I did on one of my projects. didn't look too bad. Just thought I would like to know, if there is a special way. S
I can do the kitchner stitch on stocking stitch and garter stitch. I's easier on garter stitch but I think it would be to complicated in any other stitches.
Thanks for that link, it is very simple to do and gives a neat seam. Terri
If you go to Youtube and search Grafting 1x1 Ribbing, it show how to graft stitches that are k1, p1, which is essentially what your seed stitch is. There are mutiple videos on this, so I hope you find one that works for you. Good luck!
What are you working on that you have 9 stitches to graft? Is it possible to use the 3 needle bind off?
Hi Designer 1234....I just HAVE to tell you how much I LOVE your sweater in your picture !!! I'm all for bright colors & this is the "cat's meow" as they say.....
Go to the above link and you will see where I taught a KNIT ALONG for this sweater or a cardigan. the information is on page one and the first instructions are on page four -- I would suggest you read it through there are two other finished sweaters made by the girls and we have quite a few doing one too.
I don't have a pattern but I show you how you can design your own cardigan or pullover by measuring inches and number of stitches to the inch.
let me know if you decide to do one and don't hesitate to post questions or email me privately if you need any help. Shirley
green coat- different yarns used for bottom portion
red cardigan - variegated yarn -garter stitch bottom portion
wine yoke- pullover
Shirley, I think every pattern should be knit-to-fit and go by inches and gauge. No more searching for larger or smaller patterns. A nice diagram, measurements and gauge. How much easier the world would be! But, I sure need that diagram!
Russian grafting.....how neat is this! Love it....and so easy! Thanks a bunch.....
Wow! This is mind-boggling that I've gotten so many responses. Thanks so very much and I will check out those links. Also, someone asked what I am knitting. It is a mock moebius cowl which is a super chunky yarn knit on a US #19 needle, hence the 9 stitches.
