Seed stitch, also known as moss stitch, is a basic texture stitch. It is made up of alternating knit and purl stitches. If you know how to knit and purl, you’re ready to try seed stitch. The fabric is firm, non curling, and reversible. It is ideal for collars, bands or small knit that cannot bear any large pattern. Seed stitch makes a beautiful baby coat. It is perfect in combination with almost any knitting stitch. This is an easy “must know” stitch!
For seed stitch you’ll need multiple of 2 stitches + 2 edge stitches.
