This technique allows you to join two pieces from live stitches on needles, without any thickness nor seams, for a continuous aspect of the final product.
You need your 2 pieces, placed on 2 different needles, a tapestry needle, a piece of yarn long enough to work (at least 3 times the length of one piece). In this tutorial, I use a third colored thread, but you can use the thread coming from one of the two pieces.
Place the two pieces wrong side against wrong side, the tip of the needles going the same way.
Pass the thread purlwise in the 1st stitch on the front needle.
Pass the thread knitwise on the 2st stitch on the back needle.
Pass the thread knitwise on the 1st stitch on the front needle. Let the stitch fall from needle.
Pass the thread purlwise in the next stitch on the front needle.
Pass the thread purlwise on the 1st stitch on the back needle. Let the stitch fall from needle.
Pass the thread knitwise in the next stitch on the back needle.
Repeat steps 4 to 7, without pulling the thread too much. Avery 3 to 4 stitches fallen from both needles, tighten up the thread between each stitch to get the looks and tension of stitches from both pieces.
When you only have one stitch left on each needle, pass the thread in both stitches, begininng by the one on the front needle. Tighten up the thread one last time. Weave in all ends.
