Graft heel sts together

  1. SPECIAL TECHNIQUE: GRAFTING WITH KITCHENER STITCH

    To graft 2 pieces together using Kitchener stitch, hold both needles together in your left hand, with WS facing inward. Cut a long tail from the working yarn (about 4 times the width of the fabric to be joined), and thread tail into yarn needle.

    Step 1: Insert yarn needle purlwise into first st on front needle and pull it through, leaving st on the knitting needle.
    Step 2: Insert yarn needle knitwise into first st on the back needle and pull it through, leaving st on the knitting needle.
    Step 3: Insert yarn needle knitwise into first st on front needle and pull it through, then drop this st off knitting needle.
    Step 4: Insert yarn needle purlwise into first st on front needle and pull it through, leaving st on the knitting needle.
    Step 5: Insert yarn needle purlwise into first st on the back needle and pull it through, then drop this st off knitting needle.
    Step 6: Insert yarn needle knitwise into first st on the back needle and pull it through, leaving st on the knitting needle.

    Repeat steps 3-6 only, pausing to pull sts taut and neaten the seam after every couple of inches. Be sure to always pause after a step 6 so as to not lose your place.

    When 2 sts remain, work step 3, then step 5, then fasten off.

Finishing

Weave in all loose ends.

These slipper socks seem like they take a lot of work to make, but judging by the outcome it would be worth the time and effort. I would be tempted to substitute a dark green or Kelly green for the gray in both pairs to have more of a holiday look.
