Step 1: Work your sock to the toe, stopping just before grafting the toe stitches together.
Step 2: You should have the same number of stitches on both needles.
Step 3: Before you start grafting you need to work the setup. Thread the tail of your yarn through a tapestry needle and insert the threaded tapestry needle into the first stitch on the needle closest to you as if to purl and pull it through, leaving the stitch on the needle.
Step 4: Then insert the needle into the first stitch on the back needle as if to knit, leaving the stitch on the needle. Pull the yarn through.
Step 5: Now insert your tapestry needle into the first stitch as if to knit, slipping the stitch off the needle.
Step 8: Insert the tapestry needle through the first two stitches on the back needle as if to purl, slipping both stitches off the needle.
Step 9: Insert tapestry needle as if to knit on the next (3rd) stitch, leaving the stitch on the needle.
Pull yarn through. You have now grafted two stitches from the back needle.
Step 14: Pull the end through to the inside of the sock and weave in your end! This technique is also great for the tops of mittens. Decreasing in grafting can also be helpful if you have an uneven number of stitches to graft.
Have fun grafting your socks and say goodbye to Donkey Ears!
