Hi everyone! I have a simple stockinette square that I’m trying to seam together with the seam: Invisible Weaving on Stockinette Stitch - One-Half Stitch Seam Allowance (that’s how its called in my book). It looks simple - on the knit side, insert the needle under the horizontal bar at the base of each smaller V (since stockinette edges have alternating smaller & larger Vs) on one side and then the other. The result is supposed to be a nice column of Vs, so you can’t see the seam at all (the rows just look continuous).
The problem is that the horizontal bars are supposed to stay in the back of the piece and not pull forward (so they don’t show), but just the act of inserting the needle pulls them to the front and with the yarn threaded through, they won’t go back. This stitch is recommended for sport-weight or larger yarn, and I’m using worsted weight, so the yarn shouldn’t be too thick. :??
Also, the back and forth weaving does not result in a nice V shape like in the picture, but in a series of horizontal bars that look nothing like a knitted row (especially combined with the problem above).
Part of the problem may be that I didn’t slip the first stitch of every row, but just started knitting or purling from the beginning, so I have a weird column of half-stitches on each edge that isn’t in the picture in my book. But ignoring the column, it should still work out the same - I just don’t get it .
Does anyone have any good advice about this, or maybe another invisible stitch I could try that would work better?
Thanks everyone! - Jessica
