All In The Details ~ Seaming Knits

The week got away from me! Mind, some may be glad that The Squirrel Monkey paused for a blogging breath 🙂

I stumbled over this tutorial for seaming and I love it. The technique is one I’ve used “by accident” when I was a beginner knitter, simply because it made sense (having learned crochet at the same time). This is beautifully illustrated through the original post too, as the picture below.

Come together – Joining Tutorial

I need to seam a piece in pattern, lace pattern and although Kitchener stitch is great for some things, I wanted to be sure that the beauty of the lace isn’t detracted from by stitches that don’t quite match.

This is a great tutorial for the basic Kitchener. I find I have to review it every time I use it. 1000 pairs of socks later and still, it won’t stick in my memory.

The best resource I found for grafting in pattern is this one from Knitting Daily (in two parts):

For the lace joins, I think this is brilliant!
