Meet your instructor Lindsey Stephens as she teaches you about the importance of seaming and the techniques you need to know to finish your gorgeous crochet creations. You'll also learn how to choose the best seam for your project based on the visibility, flexibility and selvage.
Lindsey teaches you how to plan and prepare your project for the best type of seam. Learn the tools and materials you need to prep for seaming as Lindsey provides tips to seam a garment so the fit doesn't change. Then, learn to pin a crocheted sleeve cap perfectly!
Expand your knowledge of traditional sewn seams with Lindsey's professional tips and tricks. First you'll learn how to work with the ever-popular invisible mattress stitch on both the finished and unfinished edges. Then learn Lindsey's technique for the fast and efficient whipstitch.
Use a crochet hook to create a raised crochet seam, a finish Lindsey prefers to use for projects that need to be more secure and sturdy. Learn how to create the slip stitch seam and single crochet seam on finished or unfinished edges. Also learn how to seam around corners to finish pockets or bags.
Lindsey provides the professional technique you need to know to connect and mimic textured stitching. Learn to identify gaps and connections as you use the connect and weave method. Then, connect different edges for a uniformed look as you mimic the texture throughout the seam.
Learn how to use a decorative seam to kick your project up a notch! Use the chain stitch seam to push your edges apart and add width (or color variation!) with a decorative touch. Then learn how to use the shell seam to add a reversible and visible delicate detail to your project.
Seaming with variegated yarn is easy with Lindsey's trick to match colors up and down the edge. You'll also learn to finish the edge on beautifully crocheted colorwork patches and multicolored stripes with matching seams. Also, learn Lindsey's trick to finishing striped projects with excess yarn.
Specialty stitches are easy to seam as Lindsey shows you her secret to finishing with invisible seams. Learn how to seam a Tunisian crochet pattern and then seam broomstick lace crochet two ways: with a tapestry needle and with a crochet hook.
