Graft a Toe Like a Pro! with Sarah Peasley
Do you flat out refuse to knit socks from the cuff down because of the dreaded Kitchener Stitch? That eensy weensy little bit of grafting at the very end of the toe, on hardly any stitches? Suck it up, buttercup! Sarah gets you going step by step, then shares some awesome hints that will make you toss your cheat sheet aside and Kitchener like nobody's business. Be the boss of those sock toes, one grafted stitch at a time!
