I've just finished my very first cardigan (woohoo!)
and I need help with sewing it up. Where best to ask than here?!
I can do mattress stitch thanks to the encouragement of the gals on this website (thank you thank you thank you), but I've hit a new set of ends (?) that I think need different kinds of seaming.
The entire garment is in garter stitch.
I have 2 bound off edges to sew together:
a hood to the neckline
This cardi was knit in one piece up to the armholes, then divided for back and sides. I now need to set the sleeves in. I have bound off edges at the top of the sleeves, with increased selvedges on the sides that need sewing onto the sides of the armholes (which are the selvedges of the body). I hope that makes sense.
So I need to know if there is a way of seaming bound off edge to bound off edge, and also of seaming a bound off edge to a garter stitch selvedge.
All you experienced knitters will have an answer for me I'm sure.
Thanks for all your help!
