Getting frustrated ... please help ...
So I'm making this poncho - using microspun by lion brand, 2 strands on size 15 needles in st st.
Now, I'm trying to seam it ... basically you fold it in half and sew it up, leaving about 11" for the head.
I have seamed it several times, several different ways and they all look ... well, very awful and icky looking. I am so frustrated.
Any ideas on a way to seam it so it doens't look icky? I think part of the problem is that the seam sits on the shoulder, where it pulls ... so the knitted part looks one way, and the seam looks another. Grrr .... it should not be this complicated, should it?!?!
TIA for any help offered!
