I need to sew up the sides of my dressing gown, what stitch should I use?
The right side is garter stitch.
Do I use the matress stitch or is that for stocking stitch only?

You can use mattress for the garter, but you pick up the bottom loop 'U' on one side and the top loop on the other.

There are pictures here. Scroll down to the purple knitting.

Thank you so much. I've decided to sew up my seams and then have another go at the collar. I am a little bit worried because I'm on my last ball of wool and I still have a fair bit to do. The lady in the shop assured me it was the correct amount but now I'm not sure. I got the wool in January so even if I do need more it won't be from the same dye lot.

I wouldn't worry about dye lots for seams.

It's not the seams I'm worried about. I've still got a (at least 3yds) of boarder to knit up, it's only 5cm wide but there's a lot of it.

It really depends on the yarn. Some show no difference in dye lots and some do.

Hooray!! After 3 goes, the collar thas turned out correctly.

Now to sewing it up. It's not garter stitch as I said before, (my mistake sorry). It's reversed stocking stitch. However it meets diagonally. I tryed the matress stitch, I don't if I hadn't done it right, (I followed the video) the seam was a mess and I undid it. Any suggestions? Could I use back stitch or would that be too bulky? I'm using a worsted weight yarn

Thanks for any help
