I finished knitting up slippers a couple of days ago and ready to seam them up the back and upper foot.
My pattern says to sew together in the outer loops of stitches. I’m not sure what type of sewing I do. Can you suggest what is suitable please?
Currently I’m sewing together the knit side of stocking stitch but the slippers are turned inside out before felting so actually the knit side is my WS.
I only know mattress stitch but happy to learn another way, I think mattress will create too much bulk on the inside seam or is it possible to do mattress on the outside loops?
If I use mattress stitch shouldn’t I be looking at my RS rather than WS so that the seam is created inside?
I’m not even sure what it means by outer loops so if you can help I would be grateful.
I thought this pattern was so basic and simple that I couldn’t possibly have questions over it but its thrown up a few. I’m so inexperienced!
