The different methods of assembly in crochet

There are several methods to assemble your djellaba with a hook, the invisible seam and the visible seam, see decorative. The choice of the latter depends on the result you want to obtain.

When it comes to djellaba, I prefer a front opening and a decorative seam. But we will explain how to assemble a djellaba using the invisible and visible seam. Then you can make your own choice.

The invisible seam with selvedge stitches

To make an invisible seam, you must first place the two parts to be joined together right sides together, which will give a discreet seam. Stitch the hook at the same time in the two selvedge stitches corresponding to the two sides and make a row of cast on or tight stitches. You can also alternate every two rows to give more flexibility and less thickness.

The invisible seam with free stitches

Step by step:

  • Place the two pieces you want to join right sides together and needle to needle, once after overlapping the two needles separate them slightly.
  • Next, hook the strand or fabric on the back of the first stitch of the first needle.
  • Do the same for the other side, stitch the strand or fabric at the back of the first stitch of the second needle.
  • You must now, thread around the hook the sewing thread, which is like "a throw" for those who are less used to sewing. Now pull through both stitches, you should get a mouth on the hook.
  • Then slide the two crocheted needle stitches together. Repeat by crocheting one stitch from each needle together. The yarn should pass through both stitches. You get two loops on the hook. Pull the first loop through the second, as you might do for a cast-on stitch. Then, drop both stitches from the needles.
  • Repeat these steps until you get the desired result.

Visible or decorative cast-on stitching

Step by step:

  • Place the two pieces you want to join together.
  • Prick your hook into the first stitch at the edge, then make a simple "throw".
  • Bring that same yarn back through the stitch to make a stitch on the hook.
  • Now pick up the hook in the corresponding piece on the left (piece to be joined).
  • Make a simple "throw".
  • Then bring it back through this stitch and the one on the hook.
  • Do the same for the other direction, pick up the second stitch to assemble, then make a "throw".
  • Bring it back through the stitch to the hook stitch.
  • Repeat these steps going up or down, depending on where you started.

Decorative or visible loose stitch

To better guide you, we have used the example of a neckline that needs to be sewn with a crochet hook, but you can apply these same steps on the place of your choice that if worn on your djellaba.

Step by step:

  • Put the two pieces you want to assemble right side up facing you.
  • Then pin these two pieces together.
  • Using your hook, take the first loose stitch from the needle by the back of the strand or fabric and slip it off the needle.
  • Then pick up the hook under the first folded-over stitch.
  • Now make a "throw" with the sewing thread and pull it through both loops.
  • Then pull the formed stitch very slightly for a smoother seam.
  • Then stitch under the next stitch, make a "throw" and finally pull through all three loops.
  • Repeat these steps until you have the final result.

It is possible to make this method invisible also by working the work inside out.
