Okay, so I'm finally doing a crochet project that has seams. I crocheted my little heart out and then I came to the part in the pattern where it says "seam shoulders" and "sew back seam" (it's a dress) and I'm clueless. I looked all over online and couldn't find anything. wtih knitting, I *get* how to sew seams, but how do I do it with crochet? Any links? Thanks so much!!<br><br>

Don't know exactly what it means, but I either pull out the good old yarn needle and literally sew up the seam w/ some yarn, or I put the two pieces together facing each other (like if you were sewing a seam on a machine) and slip stitch (or even sc) the two pieces together & turn it right side out.<br><br>
HTH, and if someone has links I'd really like to know, too!

*LOL*.. I'll give the slip stitch a try and see how that does on the back seam and try just a tapestry needle and yarn for the shoulders. Thanks so much!

Yeah I use a yarn needle and sew the seams with yarn. I hate doing seams but I love making little crochetted baby clothes so it's a necessary evil <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

That's what I do, and it works well enough for me.
