Class Overview

You'’ll learn grafting techniques to unite stockinette, seed and garter stitches, making your fabric flow. Anne demonstrates how to graft (Kitchener stitch) an invisible join with lace-weight knits, and across cables and ribbing. Knit along with Anne as she teaches you "The Song of the Knitting Graft," which will help you remember where to knit and when to purl. In no time you'’ll be tucking toe ends together, attaching edgings and aligning infinity scarf ends!
