Graft two pieces together

March 21, 2007

This was a new thing that I learned from Mango Cardigan.

There are 4 stitches left on each body and sleeves section, after knitting the yoke, I have to draft these stitches together to finish off the underarm part.

graft 1

1. First of all, I held the stitches for both sides on two different needles, with wrong sides facing each other.

2. Insert the tapestry needle into the front of the 1st stitch on the front needle, purlwise from right to left. Then pull the yarn through.

3. Insert the tapestry needle into the front of the first stitch on the back needle, knitwise from left to right. Then pull the yarn through.

4. Insert the tapestry needle into the front of the first stitch on the front needle again, knitwise. Then pull the yarn through and slip the first stitch off the front needle.

5. Insert the tapestry needle into the front of the new stitch on the front needle, purlwise, then pull the yarn through.

graft 7

6. Insert the tapestry needle into the front of the first stitch on the back needle, purlwise, then pull the yarn through and slip off the back needle.

graft 8

7. Insert the tapestry needle into the front of the new first stitch on the back needle, knitwise. then pull the yarn through.

8. Repeat steps 4-7 until there is one stitch left on the needle.

TO finish the grafting, slip the stitch off the needle. That’s it!

Thank you for this! I have only successfully grafted twice in my life – ironically, when I first began knitting. Ever since, I’ve read the instructions but it never turned out. This is a wonderful tutorial with the images included.

You are so welcome, I just want to keep a record for myself. As we don’t always do ‘grafting’ , so, I need to keep this handy so that I can use this as a reference while I need it again. 🙂
