Before joining, the sewn parts of the knitted fabric from the wrong side should be steamed or ironed through a damp cloth.

The horizontal knitted seam is used to join shoulder seams, hood seams. It comes with closed and open loops.

  • Knitted stitch with closed loops. The needle is inserted into the loop, which is located on the upper canvas, above the closed loops. Then, in the same way, it must be inserted into the loop of the opposite canvas. After sewing a few centimeters, the thread should be tightened.

  • Knitted seam with open loops. Here, the loops of the last row in the details of the knitted product are not closed. They are connected by picking up from the knitting needles, or after knitting the last row of contrastauxiliary thread, which is unraveled over and over again. The needle is inserted into the first loop of the knitted part and into the next one, after which the thread is pulled and the loop is thrown off. On the opposite part, they pick it up with a needle and pull the thread through the first loop, then grab the next one by inserting the needle from the bottomup. These movements are repeated until the desired end of the seam, removing the stitched loops from the knitting needle.
