Hi everyone! We’re getting close to wrapping up our chicken KAL and I wanted to get the Kitchener video posted. Here it is (finally).
In the video, Pixie demonstrates the kitchener stitch, which is used to close-up the back of the chicken in our current KAL on Ready, Set, Knit! The kitchener stitch grafts the two sides together and actually creates another knitted row which is then a “seamless” seam if you will. Before the video, I’ve included a couple of picture of my chicken in process. You’ll notice I used a binder clip to help hold the two sides together while I was grafting. This was necessary because the chicken is fully stuffed at this point.
In this next picture you can clearly see on the right hand side where I’ve already grafted the two sides together:
Here is Lily – all trussed up!
In the video, rather than demonstrate on one of our chickens, we opted to use two bulky weight swatches with a contrasting color so that you could easily see what is happening:
As always, I love your feedback and know Pixie and I are continuing to work on our video skills
P.S. Our 25th Anniversary Sale kicks off tomorrow! If you haven’t received our flyer in the mail (which you should have) it’s posted in full in the WEBS Group on Ravelry (just scroll down a bit).
