Bickford Stitch - How to sew the seams in knitting

The Bickford Seam is an alternative to the mattress stitch, not quite as sturdy as the mattress stitch, but it leaves no ridge on the inside of the work.

In this video, I will show you how to use the Bickford stitch to sew the seams in knitting.  

This is a method that uses a needle and thread to create a flexible and invisible seam that joins two pieces of knitted fabric together. Follow along with me as I guide you through the steps of using the Bickford stitch to sew the seams in knitting. You will learn how to align the edges of your knitted pieces, how to insert the needle through the stitches, how to pull the thread tight, and how to secure the seam. 

In the video tutorial, we have used a different yarn in a contrasting color, but typically you would use the same yarn as your knit pieces.
