Question on basics

My mattress stitch sucks. For some reason my seams are looking like the stitching on a baseball. Any tips?

Hi Sam,

Try this site it may help with your seams.

Select archive at the top of the page, then scroll down to Techniques w/Theresa, them go to seamong.

Good luck.

Happy knitting Craig.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

I think you need to pull it tight.  Then the seam will close up really nicely.
