FLOSS YOUR SOCKS! tutorial link youtube no sew flat seam machine knit socks
no sew flat sock seams single bed machine knit.wmv

This is a 12 minute tutorial of an idea that came to me after stitching up side seams on socks that I knitted on my single bed (I don't have a ribber) standard knitting machine. Titled "no sew flat sock seams single bed machine knit"

I concluded a few improvements after completion:
1. that it would be better to come from the bottom with the dental floss bobbin instead of over the top and down.

2. it is not necessary to knot the main yarn being pulled through the edge stitches - just be sure to have enough length to make sure it doesn't come un-threaded from the dental floss leader. This way there won't be a yarn knot to hang up while coming through the edge stitches.
