Grafting (also known as the Kitchener stitch) is another way to join two knitted pieces. It's a way to mock knitting by using a tapestry needle, and it creates a very stretchy and almost invisible join. It's a good technique to use when you want to give the illusion of uninterrupted fabric, such as when joining the center back seam of a scarf you've worked in two pieces.
You can graft stitches together when you want to join pieces head to head or head to side, as the following sections explain.
