BONUS! Seed Stitch Knitting Tutorial
The Seed Stitch is a very common stitch you find in knitting. It’s great as the second or third stitch you learn as a knitter because it just uses knit and purl stitches. The knit and purl stitches are alternated for a staggered, lightly bumpy texture. It doesn’t roll up like stockinette stitch, so it makes a great edging, especially for a blanket or a scarf!
Seed Stitch Baby Booties: These baby booties are the perfect last-minute baby knit project. The seed stitch makes them extra special.
Seed and Eyelet Baby Hat: How sweet will a little baby girl look in this delicate seed stitch hat that is embellished with eyelets?
Checkerboard Seed Stitch Blanket: This Checkerboard Seed Stitch Blanket is going to become baby’s favorite. Trust me.
Girls Seed Stitch Bolero: I have made this sweet bolero twice now. Once for my 2-year-old and again when her best friend kept trying to “borrow” it because she loved it so much. It took no time at all and is still a favorite.
Sweet Seed Stitch Vest: While this isn’t necessarily for baby, the pattern can easily be adjusted to fit a younger child. The construction is just darling and could even be worked up in more masculine colors for a boy.
Cozy Seed Stitch Rug: Baby’s nursery needs a little run to help keep little toes warm. This seed stitch rug really couldn’t be simpler to make.
