Horizontal seam with open loops 

This method is used when sewing parts of the product with open loops. In the product it will also be invisible. With a needle, pick up the lowered loop, then insert the needle into the next loop and pull the thread, then drop the loop from the needle. On the lower part of the stitched canvas, pry the lowered needle with a needle, then in the bottom-up direction, pry the next loop from the knitting needle and pull up the thread, then drop the loop from the knitting needle. When performing this seam it is also necessary to monitor the thread tension. 

Horizontal seam with closed loops 

In the product, this seam will be almost imperceptible, its use is especially justified when stitching together the parts connected by the front satin stitch. If the canvas is uneven, then, before you begin to sew the parts, it can be ironed. Spread out the parts of the product on a flat surface, enter the needle in the loop below the row of closed loops. Then insert the needle into the loop above the row of closed loops, pull the thread through several centimeters. Watch the thread tension carefully so that the product does not turn out to be twisted.

Joint and cross-webs 

using this method of sewing parts, you can gently sew the back and sleeve, sew the sleeve to the waist. In the product this seam will be almost invisible. Using a needle, grab the loop below the row of closed loops and pull the thread. Then, at the top of the stitched webs with a needle, pick up the broach between the hem and the next loop and pull up the thread. Repeat this sequence, after a few centimeters thread tighten. 

Vertical seam for the front surface

Apply this method of stitching parts, if the product is connected to the front surface. If necessary, then, before proceeding with the stitching of parts, they are ironed. Place the sewn parts on a flat surface, insert the needle into the wire between the edge and the next loop and pull the thread. Then, on the opposite part of the product, insert a needle into the wire between the edge and the next loop. Repeat steps 1 and 2 a few times, then pull up the thread. In the course of the seam, carefully watch the thread tension so that the product does not turn out to be skewed. 

Stitch "line"

This is the most used stitch for many knitters. It is quite simple to perform, and in the product the “line” is almost imperceptible. When performing a seam, it is important to pay attention to the fact that the seam passes below a number of closed loops, otherwise it will be visible on the front side of the product. Insert the needle with the thread between the loops, without touching the thread coils. Pull the seam in the opposite direction, draw a needle along the inside of the seam, and draw the same stitch before the previous stitch. Watch the thread tension carefully, from time to time turn the product over and check how the seam looks from the front side. 

Kettelny seam

The kettelny seam is intended for sewing on knots, pockets, slats. They can also process horizontal cuts on the canvas or fix the loops of the last row. In order for the seam to be smooth and neat, parts of the product need to be ironed before proceeding to its implementation, and it will also greatly facilitate the work. If the part of the product that you are going to sew with a chiffon stitch is connected with an openwork or relief pattern, then knit the last two or three rows with face loops and leave them open. They should also be ironed out. Then remove the needle from the wrong side and enter into the second loop and then from the top to the first. Next, thread the needle out in the upward direction through the third loop. After that, enter the needle from top to bottom again in the second loop and output already after the fourth one from the bottom to the top.
