Vertical Seam (Side Seam)

I love to use seed stitch to frame all sorts of knitting stitches.  Seed stitch lies flat and makes for easy seaming which is why I chose it to border my Building Blocks squares.  Simply work your way up a side seam by picking up the bumps going from side to side and your seam will be nearly invisible.

Who said finishing had to be difficult? Watch the vertical seam video and see if you agree!

    Can I use this for a sweater?

    This will work if your sweater is in garter stitch or seed stitch. I recommend the Mattress Stitch for other patterns.

    How do you handle seaming when the blocks are different colors?

    I would seam in the same manner as with one color. Select one of the block colors and it will be somewhat noticeable but becomes a nice design element. Congrats on finishing!
