I saw a Knitting Daily episode where Eunny Jang showed us a darning like weave method, but also another method. What is that other method called? Where can I find that KD episode??

 

Thanks!

Maybe Swiss darning? I think the KD episode might be 507. http://www.knittingdaily.com/blogs/kdtv_series_500/archive/2010/07/11/episode-507-heritage.aspx

Here's also a video for Swiss darning:

Andrew,

Is the other method by chance the Kitchner Stitch?  That is used to graft two edges together using live stitches off of 2 needles.  The most common place you will see that is finishing the toe of a sock.  Try doing a search here on KD using The Kitchner Stitch.  When this stitch is done right, it will look like stockinette stitch without seaming.

Hi All,

At the top of the page the Brown Bar>Free Resources>Glossary.  There are several different illustration under various bind off methods, including Invisible Bind Off, Kitchener stitch, Binding Off Shoulder Seam, etc. & lots more. 

Perhaps you will find what your were looking for there.  It's a very nice reference.   

 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25
