The kitchener stitch is easy to remember if you recite it to yourself. Once I read this, I never forgot and never had to look it up again.
You have a front needle and back needle with 6 stitches (or however many) each. Then recite:
***(Front needle goes first): [COLOR=Red][B]KNIT OFF, PURL ON[/B][/COLOR] (meaning you K the first stitch, remove it, then P the second on front needle BUT leave it on)
(Now move to the back needle): [COLOR=Red]PURL OFF, KNIT ON[/COLOR] (P first stitch, remove it, K the second stitch but leave it on the needle)***
Now start again re-reciting everything between the stars '***' above and you've got it by jove!!!!!!!!
When you're down to 1 stitch left on each needle K off the front and P off the back and you're done!
So it's a constant "K off, P on...P off, K on". Kind of reminds me of the "clap on clap off" commercials.
