I’m not a good sewer. I never learned to sew. I’m just really, really bad at it. :lol:
But now that I’m getting into more complicated projects, seaming has come into the picture.
So far, I’ve seamed a hat that was knit flat, and a teddy bear. I used a back stitch for both, which looks fine on the hat, and awful on the teddy bear. But it’s the only seaming technique I’m moderately comfortable with.
Now, I’m almost finished a sweater for my 8 month old DD. After I block it, I’ll have to sew the back to the front, the sleeve seams, then sew the sleeves to the sweater. Ack!! :ick:
I know if I attempt to back stitch all that, it’ll end up looking awful. My back stitch is usually crooked and ugly.
I’ve watched the mattress stitch video over and over, I’ve tried and tried to get it right, but it just doesn’t end up looking ro working the way it does in the video.
So, does anyone have any seaming advice for a poor, non-sewing beginner knitter like me? :flirt:
