Kitchener stitch is a method of grafting stitches together to form a seam. Using a tapestry needle with live (not bound-off) stitches, this sewn seam is virtually invisible. It is often used to close sock toes or the tops of mittens, but can also be used in multiple situations for grafting a seam.
This tutorial will not only give step-by-step instructions on how to sew a seam using Kitchener stitch, but will go a step further explaining the WHY behind each step. Once you understand the why, this challenging seam will become a breeze!
