Hi Folks. My name is Lisa. Welcome to my channel. Today I will be showing you the easiest seed stitch pattern for beginners. You will learn how to knit the seed stitch pattern in no time. All you need to know is the knit stitch and the purl stitch. The seed stitch pattern is a simple combination of these two stitches.

Seed stitch knitting is a common, easy stitch pattern in knitting. It is made by alternating knit stitches and purl stitches within a row and between rows. It is called seed stitch because the stitches create little bumps that may look like seeds.
Seed stitch is identical on both sides and lies flat. It is a common choice for borders because it can help prevent a border from curling up along the edges. It can be knit flat with straight needles or in the round with circular needles.
So let’s begin.

The seed stitch pattern consists of two rows: You can knit this stitch with even or odd number of stitches cast on. I have cast an odd number of stitches, 17sts. And I do this:
Row 1 (right side): *knit 1, purl 1, repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2: repeat row 1.
If you have an even number of cast on stitches you knit the following:
Row 1 (right side): *knit 1, purl 1, repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2 (wrong side): * purl 1, knit 1, repeat from * to end of row.
Knitting seed stitch with an odd number of stitches is easiest because every row begins with a knit stitch.
If you are knitting this stitch in the round follow the same rules for odd or even number of cast on stitches that you would do with straight needles.

The bottom line for knitting in seed stitch pattern, regardless of the number of cast on stitches or type of needle, is to knit into the purl stitches and purl into the knit stitches. So how do you know what stitch to knit if you are not keeping track of the order of stitches? Just look at the stitch you are about to knit:
Does it have a bump or a v shape? If it has a bump, that means that stitch is a purl stitch and you need to knit the opposite for the new stitch which will be the knit stitch. If the stitch you about to knit into has the v shape then you know it is a knit stitch and you will be knitting the opposite into that stitch, being a purl stitch. And that’s all there is to it.
So there you have it. I hope this tutorial will help you on your next project that involves the seed stitch knitting pattern. It’s a very nice pattern to knit. It gives a nice homey, cozy looking results. Let me know in the comments what you will be knitting with this pattern.
