In knitting, steeking is a shortcut used to knit garments such as sweaters in the round without interruption for openings or sleeves until the end. After completing a tube, a straight line is cut along the center of a column of stitches, in order to make room for an opening or place to attach another piece.

The term steek refers to the “bridge” that you work into your knitting, along the vertical axis where you want your piece to be cut. It helps guide your scissors and reinforces both sides of the opening that you create.
