Bead knitting: Mattress stitch

Bead Knitting Mattress Stitch Figure 1
1. Lay the knit panels next to each other with the right side facing up. Thread a tapestry needle on a length of thread twice as long as the seam to be stitched. On one panel, insert the needle under the horizontal thread between the first and second stitch, leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail. Insert the needle under the parallel horizontal bar on the other beadwork panel, and snug up the panels.

2. Work back and forth between the two beadwork panels, connecting a few rows at a time. Gently pull the thread in the direction of the seam. Snug up the panels until the seam lays flat. Connect the top and bottom corners. Secure the working thread and tails by weaving them through the beadwork, and trim.
