Please can someone teach me to do Kitchener stitch?
This Fascine Braid sock is all finished apart from grafting the toe. I’ve tried following every video and every book diagram and still I end up with a lumpy, entirely visible join. It has occurred to me that I may have diagram-lexia. Perhaps I will simply invent a new method entirely for finishing toes. Alternatively I may start a fashion for open-toed socks.
- Yarn: 100% merino wool Laine Claude, “Penelope” colourway, by Tricoquelicot; 1 skein (100g = c 430 yards)
- Needles: 3.00 mm (I use magic loop so circular, but Tiennie’s pattern is for DPNs)
This yarn from Japan is wonderfully squishy (such a good technical term).
