What is whip stitch in knitting?
Whip stitching is a common way to join two pieces of crochet or knitting together. I often use it because it is simple to do, virtually invisible, and lays nice and flat. Here I am using a contrasting color to show you the stitches, normally you would use yarn of the same color so the seam stays hidden.
How do you knit seams?
Insert the yarn needle into the top loop on one side, then in the bottom loop of the corresponding stitch on the other side. Continue to alternate in this way. This seam is used to join two bound-off edges, such as shoulder seams, and is worked stitch by stitch. You must have the same number of stitches on each piece.
Should I block sweater pieces before seaming?
Always block your finished pieces before seaming. By flattening and setting the shape of your pieces, you will be able to more easily line up your stitches to seam them together.
