Tacking Instead of Grafting or Joining a Knit Fabric

Knitting Tutorial: Try tacking your stitches when grafting or seaming with mattress stitch or backstitch just won't do.
Oftentimes when we join fabrics in knitting we either graft our live stitches (aka the Kitchener stitch) or use the mattress stitch or back stitch to create a seam. However there are times when those techniques aren't feasible and tacking our edges is a better alternative.
