Seed Stitch

Yarn Weight: Worsted
Needles: Size 6

NOTES
Seed Stitch is such a great texture, and I’ve already used this in my designs quite a bit for edgings and borders. I ran out of the brown yarn, which is why it is topped off in aqua. Have to say, I like this color combo, and I love it when “happy little accidents” teach me something new!

Double Seed St (also known as Double Moss St)

Yarn Weight: super bulky
Needles: Size 13

NOTES
I had a feeling this stitch pattern would look awesome in super chunky yarn, and I was right! It’s also reversible (both sides look the same), and if I didn’t live in Los Angeles, I’d love a sweater in this yarn with this texture.

Yarn Weight: DK
Needles: Size 6

NOTES
Love this texture on both sides, and it would make a great alternative “background” if you want something with more visual interest than Stockinette. It does curl, so it is definitely not useful for a border or edging unless you are intentionally incorporating curl.
