Woven

This seam is worked with a yarn needle, 1 half stitch from each side. By weav ing back and forth into each row, the 2 half stitches form a new knit-stitch as the yarn is pulled through.

Stockinette stitch

Single rib Use when both edges of the pieces have 1 knit-stitch. This seam will create a continuation of the pattern stitch.

Crochet slip stitch

This method is worked with the pieces held right-sides together, using a crochet hook and the basic crochet slip stitch. It produces a firm seam and prevents stretching, so itís often used for joining sleeves at armholes. This method is also suitable for mohair and less stable, textured yarns.

Place the pieces with right-sides together. Insert the hook straight into the fabric of both pieces between the first and second stitches.

Yarn over and pull up a loop through both layers. Be careful that the chain stitch seam isnít too tight!

Backstitch

This method is suitable for firmly seaming together fabric with unstable edges, such as lace (open-hole patterns) or setting in sleeves. Place the 2 pieces right-sides together (with wrong-sides facing out). Using a yarn needle, stitch the seam going ahead 1 row, and back 1 row.

Insert the needle at a straight angle into the knitted fabric between stitch 1 and stitch 2.

Going ahead 1 row, take out the needle at a straight angle. Go back 1 row, and ahead 1 row, as shown by the arrows.
Half backstitch

This is essentially backstitch seaming, going back half as far as going ahead.

 
Take out the needle at a straight angle 2 rows ahead. Go back 1 row, and ahead 2 rows, as shown by the arrows.
