MAKE IT WITH TINA : WEEK 3

Have you jumped aboard the Make Along train? Whether you’re starting to cast on (we can help you with that here), or nearly finished your kit – it’s not too late to join the fun!

SEAMS, SEAMS, SEAMS

We’ve been sharing pictures of our progress, tips we learnt along the way, and so much more over on our Facebook group (you should go check it out). Today, we’ll take a look at a few seaming techniques – so you can put the finishing touches on your projects when the time comes!

Vertical Invisible Seaming

If you’re making the Love Thing Top, it’s time to get acquainted with your new favourite seaming technique. Our how-to takes you through how to join your edges with this seam – handy for your sweaters and knitted hats.

Horizontal Invisible Seaming

If you need to join shoulder seams, or join pieces of a bag – look no further, the horizontal invisible technique is for you. Tina Tape kits like Soul Sweater make use of this technique. The most important thing to remember with horizontal invisible seaming is to keep your pieces lined up perfectly – stitch by stitch. Check out our video for more tips.

PERPENDICULAR INVISIBLE SEAMING

So we’ve got both vertical and horizontal seams covered. Now for the the perpendicular invisible seam! It’s technique is a great way to seam up sweater and cardigan sleeves – like the Careless Cardigan.

SINGLE CROCHET AS DECORATIVE EDGING

Now for some crochet! This beginner technique is used in the Everytime Scarf to add a little extra pop of colour to the piece. Follow the video tutorial to add a colourful edge or trim to your knits or crochet pieces.
