I started making the little bear that Myloveoverflows is making from the knitty site. Here is a link to the pattern. When you make the arms of the bear you make a tube in the round with 10 stitches. Then at the end of the tube it has you K2 tog 5 times so that you end up with 5 stitches. Then you work one row even. Then it tells you to “Break yarn. Graft remaining 5 stitches together.”
I looked at the list of terms that knitty has and “graft” is not there. I always think of it as kitchener stitch, but don’t you need an even number of stitches to do a proper kitchener stitch graft? What do you suppose they want you to do to join the ends?
