Seaming Question

Hello all. I have just finished a basic hat using 2 needles. I need to seam the edge. The hat is stockinette stitch. What type of seam stitch should I use? Any suggestions and tips for seaming would be greatly appreciated....I also need to seam the edges of my big garter stitch blanket. What seam stitch should I use for this? ......Hope everyone on this site has a happy and healthy holiday. Happy knitting and creating....Cullen

Mattress stitch is your friend, and now is a great time to meet. Here are a couple of links, first to a video showing the mattress stitch http://wn.com/Mattress_Stitch and an article from knitty.com on mattress stitch on garter fabric as well. Good luck with your seaming!

Oh wow! I've never seen this done before, only heard of it. This seems pretty cool. Whenever I've knit a hat on straight needles, I've used either slip stitch or single crochet to close it up (which doesn't sit too well on your head!) Sometimes I use a quick whip stitch, which comes out invisible too. This could easily become my new favorite method though!
