Grafting

We have a fabulous collection of articles and tutorials for you here on grafting, thanks to Interweave Senior Project Editor, Joni Coniglio. She has multiple articles (and videos) with in-depth instructions and detailed illustrations on every grafting topic. Joni’s experience and knowledge covers a wide range of instruction including the fundamentals, the kitchener stitch, the brioche stitch, reading charts, lace edgings, making practice swatches, and two-sided lace.

If you’re still a little apprehensive about starting out, read this great article by Lindsay Smith, or this one by Allison Korleski! They’ll help you get over your anxiety about it. You’ll also find a fun article (and some free sock patterns) “for those who hate the kitchener stitch” by Sandi Wiseheart.

We’re certain that you’ll love these articles and will want to check out our other great knitting resources in the Interweave shop including knitting videos, kits, books, ebooks, and magazines!

In part two of our discussion about how grafting creates two pattern rows, […]

In our last post, we tackled the grafting myth surrounding the half-stitch jog. This time around, we are ready to bust the myth that has knitters believing that a grafted row is the equivalent of one pattern row. Have you heard this? Are you a believer? If so, get ready for a change of perspective. […]

I ended the first post of this series with an illustration of two pieces of k1, p1 ribbing that had been grafted together top-to-top. The illustration (below) shows a slight jog in the ribbing pattern where the two pieces were joined. The grafted row appears in gray and I’ve placed color-coded grafting steps on the […]

In 2013 (continuing into 2014), I wrote a series of blog posts that focused on five of the most common misconceptions people had about grafting knitting. In the years since the series debuted, I’ve received a lot of great comments from readers saying that they found the information very helpful, so we decided to republish […]
