Mattress Stitch

Mattress Stitch is a lovely neat way to sew up your knitted garments. I use it a lot for the Cardigan as it’s the best way to hide your seam. You’re essentially mimicking the shape of the knitted stitches so it blends in. There’s not really an easy way to write about it but I’ve made some basic videos, they aren’t fancy but I hope they’ll help…

(let’s not talk about my terrible nail polish in the side seam video! Top Tip: never buy mushroom coloured nail polish if you’re fair skinned like me, here’s why…. :p )
