Hi everybody.  Am a long time knitter/lurker, but now find a need some advice/help to finish off a baby set for my daughter(she k nitted it for a friend and I finish it) It is a garter stitch sweater and I am usure of how to seam the shoulders. Have done mattress stitch on stockinette for some time with no problems and want to make these shoulders  perfect of course. All I've seen on You-tube have to do with shoulder seams on stockinette shoulders. Is the method any different. Have made 3 attempts and not happy with any of it.

 Any direction would be very much appreciated.

Here are two ways of doing the seam in garter, one for bound off edges and one for live sts. See if either helps. What a nice joint effort by you and your daughter!
