Do you know of any seam that would be comfortable enough to walk on?

These socks are seamed underneath the foot and up the back of the leg: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=103&d_id=4&lang=en

I'm struggling to think of a way to create the final seam under the foot without creating an uncomfortable ridge. Any thoughts regarding the Cast-on, the Bind-off, and sewing the seam?

Thank you!

Maybe an edge-to-edge seam?

Thank you, Ingrid! I have printed the page you suggested and will plan to experiment a bit with the edge-to-edge seam.

I'm also considering maybe a provisional cast-on and finishing off live stitches with a kitchener stitch seam, but I'll have to experiment with that also.

Thanks so much!

I think I'd find another pattern.:shrug:

Anyhoo..I have seamed garter stitch and while I wasn't thrilled with the seams they were flat. I just worked close to the edge.
