Mattress Stitch Course
Mattress stitch is a seaming method that joins pieces along the selvedges: the sides of sweaters, socks with seams at the gussets, flat-knit hats, sleeves, and so on. It has important advantages for joining knitted pieces:  It is worked from the front so you can see how it is turning out as you go along, it makes the join nearly invisible, and it allows the stitch pattern to match up over a seam.  In this lesson you will learn how to start with a Figure 8 and seam stockinette stitch, garter stitch, reverse stockinette stitch, and seed stitch.
