Learn How To Make The Knitted Welt Stitch Or Tuck Stitch
In this video tutorial, you will learn how to make the knitted welt stitch. This knitting stitch is also sometimes referred to as the tuck stitch.
However, you will also see the name “tuck stitch” used for a very different method where you drop and reknit stitches.
This creates a somewhat similar effect but not the same. We have covered this “version” of the tuck stitch in a different tutorial: Knitted Tuck Stitch AKA Coin Stitch AKA Blister Stitch [A How To Tutorial].
The welt stitch is often used as a design or structural element that will add interest to your knitting project.
In fact, you can, for instance, use this technique to make a drawstring or piping casing in your knitting.
The welt stitch is a very simple, yet very effective knitting technique for adding texture and interest to your project.
