Finishing
Grafting

Thread yarn needle with remaining yarn. Hold the two needles with wrong sides together. Keeping the yarn needle and yarn under the points of the knitting needles, graft the stitches together as follows:

  1. Insert yarn needle through first st of front needle as if to knit and slip the st off.
     
  2. Insert needle through 2nd st of front needle as if to purl, but leave the st on the needle.
     
  3. Insert yarn through first st on back needle as if to purl and slip the st off.
     
  4. Insert yarn through 2nd stitch on back needle as if to knit, but leave st on needle. Repeat from * until all the sts are joined. Take care to draw yarn up so that gauge of grafting equals gauge of knitting. Fasten off. Weave in yarn ends.
