Grafting in garter stitch
I have a grafting / kitchener stitch question(s).

I am working in garter stitch and would like to graft my two pieces together. Do I do it the same as a stocking knit grafting? Do I need to be concerned with wrong and right side of the piece?

Any thoughts and help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Do you mean seaming, like up the sides of a sweater? If so here's a few links that might help. Info is at the end of the articles.

Knitty- seaming garter

This one actually has info on grafting garter stitch if that IS what you mean.

I had to do this recently and instead of following instructions that are meaningless to me in terms of what each stitch I make is actually doing (and end up not quite working), I found it much better to put the rows on waste wool and duplicate-stitch the extra row. Remember one row needs to be a purl and one a knit row, looking from the same side.
