I’ve sewn the shoulders of a cardigan knitted in garter stitch, and although following Debbie Bliss’ instructions to the tee, the seam is quite visible. My issue is that where the two shoulder ends come together you see about three or four lines of stockinette, whereas this pattern is in garter. Does that make sense? As in, the way that I have sewn the ends together seems to distort the garter pattern and that makes it unnattractive. I’ve looked at photos of this finished cardigan and the shoulders look invisible, with a perfect garter stitch.
Here are my photos of the sewn shoulder:
Looks like something’s wrong at the top, right?
Here’s what this cardigan should look like:
You can see that it’s perfect garter all the way and so perfectly invisible.
