KNITTING TIP - How do you do a mattress stitch
Is it normal to see flowers when doing the mattress stitch ??
For some strange and unknown reason, I was able to memorize the mattress stitch technique by visualizing flowers.
HORIZONTAL MATTRESS SEAM:
The two leaves of the flower represent a stitch. When I have to join two rows together (horizontal seam), I visualize a road between the rows and I have to pick up each flower (stitch) by passing the tapestry needle behind them...
VERTICAL MATTRESS SEAM:
And when I have to join two rows together (vertical seam), I imagine that I have to pull on the stem by passing the needle between the two leaves...
