Sewing COand Cast on edges together
I am making(another) garter stitch hat. My first one on Friday had me gs for 19 in the CO. Lay flat and then place CO andCast On endges side by side and then seam..
Here is the problem: It is supposed to look like a new row of knitting mine just looked like a bumpy mess.
I don't understand how we are supposed to sew the two seams together.. I can't watch amy video now because my computer downloads SLOW LY. I have seen the mattess stitch video..
I just want these to look ok ..Can anyone help???

On this page there are illustrations for seaming. If you are joining the cast on edge to the bind off edge, you can use the instructions on the page linked above for 'joining shoulder seam', even though it's not a shoulder seam the same procedure applies. Also, I know that the illustration shows it using stockinette stitch, but with garter stitch you should still be able to see the row of 'V' shaped stitches and it should work the same way.
