You can join your current knitting to previous knitting by working a stitch from the current piece together with a stitch from the edge of the previous piece. This requires that the previous piece either has stitches that were left on holders, or you have picked up stitches along the edge and placed them on a needle. Joining at a right side edge.

  • At the end of every wrong side row, purl 2 together (the final stitch from the current piece and the next stitch from the previous piece).
  • On the beginning of every other right side row, slip the stitch from the right hand needle back to the left hand needle and knit 2 together (the next stitch from the previous piece and the first stitch from the current piece).

Joining at the left edge.

  • At the beginning of every wrong side row, slip the stitch from the right hand needle to the left hand needle and purl 2 together (the next stitch from the previous piece and the next stitch from the current piece).
  • On the end of every other right side row, knit 2 together (the last stitch from the chart and the next stitch from square 2).
