BACKSTITCH

-

This is the stitch most commonly used for joining knitted garments. With the right sides of your work together, pin the knitted fabric together with the edges even. The seam should be sewn one full stitch from the end of the row. One stitch should be worked over every row. Thread the yarn needle. Insert the needle through both layers and sew two stitches to the left then one stitch back to the right. Keep stitches at an even distance.

Continue working from right to left in this circular motion. (Diagram 1)
