Seed Stitch Image

Seed stitch (or moss stitch to British knitters) is a very common decorative material that is reversible, flat and somewhat bulky, and is often used at the borders and edges of a piece.

It can be worked in any number of stitches, though the pattern varies depending on whether an even or odd number of stitches is worked.

Even stitchesEdit

1. *k1, p1, repeat from *
2. row 2 *p1, k1, repeat from *

2. *p1, k1, repeat from *


Odd stitchesEdit

NotesEdit

Since one is regularly alternating between stitches in a row, it's quite common for Seed stitch to have a lower Gauge than other fabrics. Consequently, if this material is part of a larger pattern, it may be a good precaution to create a separate Gauge swatch in Seed stitch. If you find your tension is lower, use a smaller Needle size for the Seed stitch section. Otherwise, you may find your pieces looks "wavy", due to the varied gauges in the piece.
