Have you tried knitting the seed stitch? Seed stitch is a stunning and simple knit pattern that’s achieved just by alternating your knits and purls. The result is a beautifully textured and squishy knit.
As with most projects, there are slightly different instructions for knitting flat as opposed to knitting in the round. That’s because your next row or round depends upon whether you’re working the right side and then flipping to the wrong side (as you do for knitting flat) or always working the right side (as you do for knitting in the round).
If you’re ready to give the seed stitch a go, try out The Sophia Cowl. You can do it! This pattern, which you can find here, is offered in both child and adult sizes and uses the dreamy Manos del Uruguay Maxima yarn. You’ll need two skeins for the adult size you see here.
And, if you’re a little unsure about starting a knitting project “in the round” or want to see the seed stitch in person, you can drop into the Home Made shop for some knitting help! Details about our Drop In Knitting Help and Private Lesson services are here.
The Sophia Cowl is a warm, but lightweight cowl that served me well during my walk on the beach yesterday. Finally, a sunny day when the shop is closed and I can get outside! And, a good excuse to take a break from the super glamorous side of owning your own business – cleaning and paperwork! (:
