Beginning a seam and Mattress stitch tutorial

With the pieces to be joined placed next to each other with right side upwards, thread the tapestry needle and push it through the fabric (your knitted pieces of work) after the first stitch, moving the needle from front to back. Then, take the needle and push it through after the first stitch on the second piece, moving the needle from the back of the work to the front. The yarn will form a figure 8. Tug gently to secure.

Mattress stitch

  • With the two pieces to be joined lying next to each other, hook the horizontal bar of the first stitch with the tapestry needle. Move to the other piece and hook the first horizontal bar of the first stitch on that side.
  • Repeat this moving from one piece to the next and pulling the yarn to tighten the join.
