Another good use for 'mattress stitch': when seaming a hat/cap that will be worn "turned up"...seam the RIGHT SIDE as usual...but when you come to the section of the "brim" that will be turned up when worn...simply bring your yarn to the "inside"...turn the cap inside out, and seam (mattress stitch) it as you did on the hat's true RIGHT SIDE.

How easy to create a RIGHT SIDE on the WRONG SIDE! But "right for the wearing"!!!
