Left Hand Straight Seam In Single Crochet When Working in the Round

This tutorial will show you how to make a straight seam when you are working in single crochet in the round and are joining on every round. It will also show you how to make that seam nearly invisible. This technique is crucial in order to follow any of my Fair Isle crochet patterns, but can also be used for a variety of other kinds of projects.

Important Note:Β Be sure to tighten the SL ST and CH 1 as much as possible. If you find that the seam is slanting to the right, you are not tightening enough.

    Thank you so much for your tutorials. This one has helped me so much. In the explanation if the join it says that if you find the seam is slanting to the right you aren’t pulling it enough. I’m assuming you mean to the left for us lefthanders.

Let me know what you think
