|21: Vertical Seams
After joining the first two stitches on the
cast-on edge, catch the needle under the second bar from the edge,
pull the yarn through and the catch the needle under the
corresponding bar on the second side. Continue the seam, weaving the
yarn from side to side [pic 8,9,10].

9: (right) The second stitch is on the lower piece.
10: Connect stitches alternating from side to side.
Join a few rows, then tighten and release
the seam as with right side facing seams (see
here) [pic 11].
11: The purl rows align perfectly.
This piece has been knitted very loosely to show the stitches and
rows, so the rows have clumped into pairs. This disappears when the
knitting is firmer.
