Just wondering if anyone has tried crocheting seams in knitting instead of sewing them up. One pattern I was following suggested this method and I've used it ever since.
Makes a lovely neat seam and, I think, is a lot easier than sewing.

I have not done this but I would think it would be easiest to crochet than knit seams. In my local yarn store the lady there did that with a baby blanket. It looked very nice and stated it goes quick.

Hi SueLD,
I'd never tried it before but I like the way the seam looks so neat and is not bulky. I hate sewing up anyway but this method is so easy (just slip stitch along the seam) and quick.

Oh, yes, I hate sewing, I much rather crochet than sew with a sewing needle...

I agree with West Coast Kitty--crocheted seams can be awfully thick. And Kiwi Annie, tell us how you "knit" seams together. I've been knitting for fifty years and never figured that one out!
