Homework for February Meeting
February 9 program: SEAMING
Learn to do the mattress stitch to sew your sweaters together. To participate make 2 swatches with worsted weight yarn and size 7 or 8 needles. Cast on about 15 stitches and work in stockinet stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row) for 5 to 6 inches. Bind off your swatches. Be sure to block them to make sewing together easier. Bring a contrasting yarn of the same weight to sew together. That will allow you to see what is happening as you sew.
