Level: Advanced Beginner
stitch is a seaming method that joins pieces along the selvedges: the sides of
sweaters, socks with seams at the gussets, flat-knit hats, sleeves, and so on.
It has important advantages for joining knitted pieces: It is worked from the front so you can see
how it is turning out as you go along, it makes the join nearly invisible, and
it allows the stitch pattern to match up over a seam. In this lesson you will learn how to start
with a Figure 8 and seam stockinette stitch, garter stitch, reverse stockinette
stitch, and seed stitch.
