I just finished the above sweater and need some advice.  How do I sew together the back center seam?  It was stitched in a K2P2 rib pattern, the rows match up horizontally.   The rows do match up across but once I started to join them with the usual mattress stitch it started to look awful.  Any suggestions on how I can join the center back seam?

Gosh, mattress stitch would have been my first choice too, but if it's not working out, try the more common sewing type seam  (public sides facing and seam with a running backstitch). This project shows the back seam which is visible but seems to have come out neatly.
