Use mattress/ladder stitch (invisible seaming) to join pieces together where possible, as this method of sewing up gives the neatest seams. Place the two edges together, right sides upwards, and starting at the cast-on edge, take the yarn underneath the strand beside the edge stitch at one side and then the other.
