Could someone help me with sewing seams?
Hello! I'm new to knitting (I taught myself over the Memorial Day weekend). One of the projects I'm working on is a simple purse.
The pattern basically produces a 9" x 20.5" rectangle. The instructions call for you to fold the rectangle in half and sew the side seams.
Basic. Easy. No problem, right?
Well, I have a dilemma. I don't know what stitch to use for the side seam. I searched on google for answer but I didn't find any helpful ideas. I looked at the videos for stitches on this site, but I can't figure out which one would be the best to use.
Also, even though the pattern does not specify state so, I would assume that I should sew the seam on the wrong side of the work. Therefore, when I turn the work right side out, the seam would be invisible.
I realize that my questions are elementary, but I'm at a standstill with this simple project. I just need some direction from you smarter, more experienced folk. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer me.
