What is grafting in knitting?

Grafting is a method of closing some knitting works (such as mittens or socks). No more stitching everywhere, grafting is a simple and effective way to finalize your creations.

This technique makes it possible to join, in a flexible and invisible manner, the pieces to be assembled, if they have exactly the same number of stitches. You have to put the thread in the stitch which corresponds to it, then to return on the other side in a back and forth between the two pieces, to reconstitute a new rank of stitches.

This technique is used for several reasons, for example, to add a knitted part to a work that is too short (sleeves, bottom of a vest, etc.), in order to assemble two parts invisibly.
