Knitting Mattress Stitch with Fiona Goble
Fiona Goble • Educational, G, 10-Jan-2020
This is a simple but useful sewing stitch. It is used in knitting and it allows the knitting to lay flat when joining two pieces on top of each other.
Fiona shows us how easy this is with a contrast thread. Usually, she would choose a matching colour to the knitted project.
In this project she is joining two pieces which are flat. The stitch is also, and more commonly, used when joining the side seams of a knitted project.
Fiona is working on is her knitted rabbit. You can enjoy this How to knit a rabbit scrap workshop by clicking here.
