Hi everyone…I am not liking my seaming method (mattress) When Kirchner stitch is used, you need LIVE STITCHES, do you “pick up” stitches or do you keep them “live” on a needle? In other words, can I use this (Kirchner) to seam up a hat that’s made flat:aww: Thanks all…
You would have to use a provisional cast on so that when you are finished you can remove the first row of sts . You will then have live sts at each end and can proceed with Kirchner. There used to be a free hat pattern at KP for doing this.
oooops my mistake - tht would only work if you were knitting the hat sideways instead of top to bottom. sorry:oops:
Kitchener stitch is used only on beginning and/or end stitches, not the edge stitches. So you could use it at the top, but not to seam up the sides.
