How to knit seed stitch

Hello you lovely lot! I hope all is well in your world.

I’m so glad that the winter weather seems to have finally been driven out and we are starting to see the beautiful colours again.

 Beautiful Purple tulips

I wanted to share one of my favourite stitches today, seed stitch. I love the pretty pattern it creates. It may seem a littel fiddly at first as you swap between knitting 1 stitch and then purling 1 stitch, but once you get into a rhythm it just flies off the needles.

The stitch pattern depends on whether you have an even or odd number of stitches.

For an even number of stitches there is 2 rows to the pattern:
Row 1: K1, P1 across
Row 2: P1, K1 across

For an odd number of stitches there is only 1 row:
Row 1: K1, P1 across

And that’s all there is to it. Easy peasy!

I’d love to see some pictures of your seed stitch creations. Why not send them to me,

Have a lovely day,
