Tacking Instead of Grafting or Joining a Knit Fabric
Oftentimes when we join fabrics in knitting we either graft our live stitches (aka the Kitchener stitch) or use the mattress stitch or back stitch to create a seam. However there are times when those techniques aren't feasible and tacking our edges is a better alternative.
