Emily Explains: Seaming Elongated Stitches

Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 8.51.18 AM

Seaming and finishing can be tricky sometimes, especially when your stitch pattern is something other than stockinette or garter stitch. A few weeks ago, someone emailed and asked how we would recommend seaming the Dyssodia pattern from booklet #340 Berroco Maya vol. 2, which has stitches that range in size. Here’s my advice: There is no right or wrong rule to this technique. But I like to think that you should be in a calm and peaceful place when you decide seam – concentration is key! I seam with the right sides facing me so that I can see how my seam is shaping up.

Follow along as I seam swatches featuring the pattern stitch, knit in Berroco Maya.

Do you prefer seaming or knitting in the round to avoid seams?

Happy Knitting!

    Knitting in the round to avoid seems is my preference.

      Sometimes I do that too, but I think that seams can help support garments sometimes too : )
