seaming help!

ironkitJuly 1, 2007

I'm finally to the point where I can sew the pieces of a cardigan together. However, I just realized that I have no idea how to sew two bind off edges together. I would normally use a 3-needle bind off, but they're not straight across, so I can't do that.

So, how do I sew two bind off edges together and make it look good?

Kit, the nicest seam I know of is using the mattress stitch. It's not difficult. There are lots of sites out there with instructions, but I am giving you a link to one that has very good pictures. Good luck. Pictures, please.

Here is a link that might be useful: mattress stitch
