How is this possible? I guess I shouldn't have turned the pants inside out before I started to kitchener the crotch together. So now it looks horrible!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
Do you think there is a way to take the grafting out and redo it without totally messing up the whole thing? I finally knitted a perfect pair of picky pants and then I do this!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

This happened to me too and it drove me crazy trying to figure out why. Make sure you are slipping your stitches off the needle before you tighten them. Watch the video on KnittingHelp.com a few times, it really helped me a lot.

yeah, try to get the live stitches back on 2 needles then work the kitchener back out...it'll be lots of fun.<br><br>
and, guess you probably figured out not to turn the pants inside out. sorry that happened to you!

I did the exact same thing! I assumed that it was like sewing, where seams are to the inside. It took me awhile to figure it out, then longer to work up the courage to disassemble it and fix my mistake.

Or, of course, you could always just duplicate stitch over the top of the seam. Just a thought...

and the benefit of the duplicate stitch would be to reinforce an area that commonly gets holey.
