When knitting socks on the flatbed machine (or knitting them flat by hand) a seam is needed. You want this seam to be as comfortable as possible and still look good!

If you use the standard Mattress Stitch seam, you’ll end up with a seam with 2 stitches against the leg and/or the foot.

Bickford Seams are very flat, they are strong and they look great!
