Hi there can anyone help with how to graft shetland lace? I am knitting Rowan’s pattern Carolina from their latest magazine - Ive done loads of it but have been unhappy with the effect when grafting the lace using kitchener stitch. The live row has three series of cast-off stitches to create loops, so the grafting process causes the lace to bunch up.
I am grafting this row (previous row ends 46sts):
cast off 8, k until there are 2 sts on right needle, *cast of 6, k until there are 2 sts on right needle after last set of cast-off sts, rep from * once more, cast of next 6 sts, K to end - 20sts.
To a row of 20 cast on sts.
Is there a special technique, or am I right to assume the pattern means kitchener stitch when it says “graft”?
