21: Vertical Seams (cont.)

Garter stitch seams

Garter stitch seams are worked by joining the bars and connecting threads that occur in strict sequence. The back and front of the rows alternate to form garter stitch [pic 16,17,18, 19,20].

16: (left) When joining garter stitch, the first stitch is on the lower piece. This sets the match for the row ridges.
17: (right) The second stitch.

18: Join the stitches in sequence matching rows on alternate sides.

19: (left) The row ridges align perfectly.
20: (right) The edge of garter stitch shows the ladder of connecting threads alternating from the front to the back of the work.
