Very clearly explained! I had heard of this technique but had not tried it before or gotten very many specifics. I feel like I could do this now using your post as a reference. I look forward to the rest of the series!


I've never tried this one, either. I'm a fan of mattress stitch for seams, but mostly because I've never tried anything else! It's always good to have several ways of doing something in your knitting arsenal. I'll try this on my current sweater when the time comes.

I avoided making up altogether during my sweater days by stuffing the pieces in a bag and giving them to my mother. Now that I have attained sufficient maturity to do my own sewing I find myself knitting tubes and things with few parts (such as shawls). I may now switch to crochet as a means to overcoming my aversion to sewing knitted items.
