Seed Stitch

Seed stitch creates a nice bumpy-textured fabric that lies flat and looks the same on both sides. You knit the purl stitches and purl the knit stitches. When using seed stitch, you need to cast on an even number of stitches.

o Row 1 (right side): *Knit 1, purl 1; repeat from * to the end of the row.

2 Row 2 (wrong side): *Purl 1, knit 1; repeat from * to the end of the row.

3 Repeat rows 1-2.

Counting Rows in a Stitch Pattern?

It's pretty easy to count rows in stockinette stitch, because you can just point the tip of your needle into the center of each V on the front and count upward. When stitches are difficult to count, the best solution is to slip a row counter onto your needle and diligently keep track that way. Doing so can save you a lot of time because you do not have to keep counting over and over again.

Selvages are edge stitches that are worked differently from the body of a piece of knitting. They create a stable, even edge that makes seaming easier, or that forms a firm, attractive finished border. Selvages also help when you don't want part of your stitch pattern to disappear into the seam.
