How To Knit Seed Stitch

The seed stitch consists of single knits and purls that alternate both horizontally and vertically.

Seed stitch is a great textured stitch and gets its name from the texture of the knitted fabric – the little purl bumps look like scattered seeds.

It is a little more complicated than other beginner stitches like the garter and stockinette stitch.

Using these stitches only requires basic knitting skills, such as casting on, knitting stitches, purling stitches, and casting off.

If you have learnt these knitting techniques, then the moss stitch should be no problem for you, but you can always brush up on these knitting basics first if you feel the need.
