The most common way to graft stitches is to use a darning needle. However, I like to use a knitting needle to work my graft so here I have provided a tutorial for both. Using a knitting needle can feel a little clunky in the beginning but I prefer it for a couple of reasons. Firstly using a darning needles requires me to have one on my person. Sure, I could just go find one, but what if I am out and about and finish the toe of my sock but forgot to put the darning needle in my bag? I mean, to truly finish a sock (or other project requiring a graft) you could argue that the ends need weaving in, but who actually does that straight away?!… Okay, sometimes I do, but not always! Being able to graft with a knitting needle not only means that you don’t have to have a darning needle on you but I also tend to find I get a better, more even graft, which is so satisfying!
