flat_rib_joinI’m using a 1×1 flat rib for my current project. In planning ahead I realized that I couldn’t visualize how the needle setup should be so the side seams will match.

I went to my machine and knit a small (4″ wide or so) swatch. I used this needle arrangement.

I then cut the swatch in half and joined the “seam”.  Perfect join!  Worth the little bit of time it took to plan my seam joins.
