kitchener stitch
How to sew together knitted fabric
with no seam line
Why learn Kitchener Stitch?
• Kitchener stitch creates a join that is
difficult to see or feel.
• It’s most appropriate in areas where a
seam would be mildly or very
– Underarm of a sweater worn next to the skin
– Toe or heal seam of a sock
– Under-alls and baby clothes
Why is it so difficult?
• Kitchener stitch isn’t difficult at all…what
can be difficult is:
– Learning the stitch from written instructions
– Remembering the preparation steps
You’ve finished your first sock …
… and now you’re left with a hole at the toe.
In the image below, the stitches that
remain after decrease are turquoise.
Active vs. Finished stitches
In this tutorial, “active” unfinished stitches
will be in bright colors, and stitches that
are finished will be dark. Here, black
shows stitches that are finished.
How did those black stitches get on
the needles?
If you were to kitchener stitch the active
stitches only, when you were finished
you’d still have a little slit in the sock …the
pink line shown here.
Pick up stitches
Holes in the toes can be as annoying as a
seam, so pick up a completed stitch at
both ends of both needles.
Getting the Yarn to Kitchener
Adding new yarn at the toe, even if it is just
woven in can be uncomfortable after a day
of wear. Instead leave a long tail of yarn.
The tail is red and is now on a darning
Position the yarn
The yarn tail is now in an inconvenient
position. It begins on the last active stitch
and crosses over the top of the finished
stitches you just picked up.
Correct Position to Start
Using the darning needle, pull the tail
through the first finished stitch on the back
Setup 1
You can now begin the setup for kitchener.
Pull the yarn through the first stitch on the
front needle as if to purl. Leave the stitch
on the needle.
Setup 2
Now pull the yarn through the first stitch on
the back needle as if to knit. Leave the
stitch on the needle.
Kitchener 1
Go back to the front needle and pull the yarn
through as if to knit.
Kitchener 2
You can now slip the first stitch on the front
needle off the needle and immediately set
up the first front active stitch by pulling the
tail through it “as if to purl”.
Kitchener 3
You then move to the back needle, run the
tail through the first stitch as if to purl, slip
off, set up the next back stitch by pulling
the yarn as if to knit, move back to the
front needle.
Kitchener 4
By continuing this pattern from right to left
you will end up at the left end of the toe
with what looks and feels like a row of
stockinette stitch.
Kitchener Pattern
• 01, 01, 01, 01 – off on, off on, off on, off on

stitch combo is removing a stitch and setting up the
next and leaving it on.
• The front needle is alphabetical
– Knit off
– Purl on
• The back needle mirrors
