Hello everyone! 🙂
I’ve recently placed a new pattern on the Peggin’ Pages: the Chunky Slipper Socks, as well as creating a new pattern called Pretty Peds for the new Decor Accents EvenKnit Sock Loom. Well, each of these new patterns involve a grafting technique you may have heard of: the Kitchener Stitch.
Let me tell you now…this stitch is a little tricky to get the hang of! It has a total of 4 steps required in order to bind off just 2 stitches. BUT! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this great technique! When done correctly, you absolutely cannot see a seam line…your seaming stitches look like just another row of knitting….marvelous! 🙂
The instructions found for this grafting technique are all based on knitting terms…which is fine, but just a tad confusing for those of us who are not regular knitters. Also, the instructions are usually large and not very conducive for tucking into your knitting bag.
So…because I’ve been wanting one for myself, and have been teaching the Chunky Slipper Socks in my local looming group (which, by the way, was so fun last night! Great to see you ladies!), I decided to design a little pocket Quickguide based on terms loom knitters will be more familiar with. Remember this is not an end-all tutorial…it’s just a little guide to tuck into every knitting bag you may have need of one, to help you remember the repetitive steps a little easier as you do them. 🙂
This is a download-able PDF file that you can print from y0ur own computer at home (I recommend using card stock for more strength). The file includes 2 copies of front and back cards that you can place back to back and then laminate to make it last longer and protect it as you’re digging around for your knitting tools, lol.
I hope you like it…Enjoy! 😀
