Small Favors: First in a Series

For seaming, use sock yarn of the same color as the knitted pieces. Sock weight mercerized cotton works well too.

Why I love this?
  • Finding a use for those little tidbits and balls of leftover yarn.
  • It isn't (usually) as bulky as the yarn I used for the garment.
  • It withstands being pulled through the knitted fabric numerous times with minimal haloing and fuzzing.
  • There's just enough contrast between the garment yarn and the sock yarn that you can see the sock yarn should you (heaven forbid) need to remove and resew a seam.
