Simple Seeds

Looking for a little spice to dress up a plain knit? Using a simple seed stitch or variation could be just the ticket. Whether using a plain yarn, which often shows off a texture best, or whether you are using a variegated yarn, these easy seeds take that project to the next dimension.


Simple Seed Stitch: a stockinette stitch interspersed with purl stitches.

Done over a multiple of 4 sts.

Row 1: *K3, P1*
Row 2 and all other even rows: purl
Row 3 and 7: knit
Row 5: K1, *P1, K3*, P1, K2

Done over an area of a few inches, this easy pattern creates the illusion of diamonds.
