Fake Grafting to Join Knit Pieces

Fake Grafting Tutorial: Join the cast on and bound off edges of your knit fabric together almost invisibly
Fake grafting was one of the first ways I learned to join knit fabrics together. It's not as "seamless" as other joins, but it often works well enough.

Before You Begin

Fake grafting can be used anytime you are joining the cast on and/or bound off edges of your knitting together. It works well for shoulder seams, infinity scarves or bag straps that are worked in stockinette stitch.

On the knit side, fake grafting blends in to your stitches almost invisibly. On the purl side, there will be a slight ridge.

Materials

  • Schoppel Zauberball Cotton
  • yarn needle
