Grafting (knitting)

In knitting, grafting is the joining of two knitted fabrics using yarn and a needle in one of three types of seams:

  1. selvage-to-selvage seam,
  2. selvage-to-end ("wales") seam, or
  3. end-to-end ("wale-to-wale") seam.

The Kitchener stitch is a common method for the third type of seam. The yarn follows the route of a row of ordinary knitting. This is often done when closing off a knitted sock at the toe. The technique is named after Horatio Herbert Kitchener, though the technique was practiced long before.
