The Seed Stitch II is created by alternating two rows of knit and purl stitches. The photo shows two examples of the Seed Stitch II using different yarn weights and knitting needle sizes.
This knitting stitch creates a very lovely texture. It is also versatile and can bring you different looks just by switching your yarn and needles. This stitch is definitely recommended for novice knitters because it just uses the basic knit and purl stitches but with a little bit of creativity can bring you elegant looking pieces or accents in your handmade.

What do you think of this pattern? Using a super bulky yarn with this stitch will make a nice scarf or throw, and it knits up pretty fast because of the chunky yarn. I would love to see what you make of it!
