21: Vertical Seams (cont.)

Joining knit to purl

If you are joining a seam that has the right side of stocking stitch on one side, and the purl side on the other, match the bars of the purl stitch, one stitch in from the edge, to the corresponding connecting thread between the first and second stitch from the edge of the stocking stitch piece [pic 12,13,14,15].

14: Seam progresses as consecutive stitches are joined from alternate sides.

15: A well matched seam is invisible.
