SEWING SEAMS

You can join cro­chet seams by us­ing a ta­pes­try nee­dle or a cro­chet hook, us­ing one of these four meth­ods.

Simply Crochet - - YOUR GUIDE -

1 Sewing with a ta­pes­try nee­dle is the reg­u­lar and neat way to join seams. Place two pieces of cro­chet right sides to­gether and over­sew them as shown above, us­ing a ta­pes­try or yarn nee­dle.

2 To slip stitch a seam, place the cro­chet pieces right sides to­gether. *Insert hook into both edge stitches, yrh and pull through to com­plete 1 slip stitch; rep from * work­ing into the next edge stitches, keep­ing work fairly loose.

3 For a dc seam, place the cro­chet pieces right sides to­gether, or wrong sides to­gether for a vis­i­ble seam. Work as for slip stitch seam, us­ing dou­ble cro­chet in­stead of slip stitch.

4 A use­ful vari­a­tion on the dc seam, the dc and chain seam is used when less bulk and/or greater flex­i­bil­ity is needed. Work 1 dou­ble cro­chet and 1 chain al­ter­nately.
