Joining with an invisible stitch.
Hello! Would you like to know how I join all the seams of my knitting and crochet? You would?! That's great. I hope the following instructions are clear enough, and that they help you. The invisible stitch I am using, is also known as the 'ladder stitch', because the line of yarn joining your work, looks like a ladder, before it has been pulled taught. In these instructions, I'm joining up the squares of my 'Little Squares Scarf'. Right, here goes! Having lined up your middle squares of the first row ready to be sewn up, thread your needle with some yarn. Although I have four squares in each row of my scarf, I am going to start by sewing up the centre of the middle two rows of squares. Make sure your squares are all lying with the right side, (the front), facing up. 1. Above is another photo, to try and make it extra clear. In the photo above, you can see what I've just done. 2. You can see what I've just done, in the picture above. 3. Above you can see how your stitch is starting to look.
