How to Seam the Garter Stitch, Not Using the Mattress Stitch

posted in: Blog, Videos | 2

Here’s another video using this same technique with contrasting colors, it’s a little easier to see how it comes together:

So, if you’ve been following me, you probably already know that I dislike seaming. I’m trying to step outside my comfort zone and try seaming again…
it opens a whole new world of opportunities! :)

When I went to sew this seam I Googled “seam garter stitch.”

A few videos popped up, so I watched them and had a hard time duplicating their results, so what do I do… create my own stitch!

There are only 2 steps… so easy to remember!

I’m giddy with the results!

It’s almost completely seamless and there’s no bulge where it comes together making it reversible!

Please give this a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!

    I hate seaming knits too! I’m very interested in the new method that you have designed, but I had difficulty seeing exactly what you were doing, on that dark, tweedy yarn! I will be watching for your tutorial using a lighter color of yarn.
    My seams always look bumpy, lumpy & thick! I look forward to learning a better way to finish my work!
    Thank you so much!

      Hi Kathy,

      I agree, it is hard to see! I’m curious to see how it looks with a super bulky yarn too. I’ll try to get that done before the end of the month :)
