Sewing knitted strips together... HELP!
I made an afghan by knitting five separate panels/strips which now must be sewn together. :( What is the best way to do this. The afghan will be beautiful if I can get it sewn right; but I will never make one with separate panels again!!

Please help!! Thanks!

The mattress stitch, shown under Finishing on the Tips page, is usually used. You can sc or slip st the edges together if you know how to crochet.

To avoid the seams that mattress stitch will leave, you can use edge-to-edge seaming.
