Kitchner Stitch Grafting and a Free Knit Sock Pattern

Free Knit Pattern: Show your team spirit with a pair of slippers in your favorite professional, college or high school sports team's colors | The Chilly DogBefore I knit my first pair of socks, I was nervous about two things. First, the patterns seemed confusing because there were so many different parts for such a small article of clothing. If you are unclear about how a sock is knit, check out my last post about the anatomy of a knit sock. You'll find that they aren't as complicated as you may think.

My other issue was grafting the toe of the sock. I had been taught to bind off all my knit edges, so I thought using the Kitchner stitch to graft unfinished edges together would be difficult. Let me show you the process.

You should have the same number of stitches divided evenly across two needles. Hold the needles parallel so that your last knit stitch is on the back needle. You will be using the tail  of your last stitch, threaded through a plastic yarn needle, to graft from right to left.
