Double seed stitch

The double seed stitch is a variation on the normal seed stitch and is made by combining knit stitches and purl stitches. This stitch looks the same on the front and on the back, so it can be used for double sided projects like a scarf. The double seed stitch is not very flexible and it holds its form very well.

Double seed stitch pattern

For the double seed stitch you can cast on with any cast on stitch you like. Cast on a multiple of 2 stitches. This means the number of stitches you cast on can be divided by the number 2. Once your knitwork is finished you can also cast off with any stitch you like.

In row one start knitting a true knit stitch, then a purl stitch, a knit stitch and so on untill the end of the row. If you have cast on an even number of stitches you will end your first row with a purl stitch.

If you have ended your first row with a purl stitch start the second row with a purl stitch again. Then a knit stitch, a purl stitch and so on. So on top of every knit stitch, you knit another knit stitch in the next row. For every purl stitch you knit another purl stitch in the next row.

In row 3 the pattern is the other way around. If you have cast on an even number of stitches, you will have ended row 2 with a knit stitch. In row 3 start with a purl stitch, then a knit stitch, a purl stitch and so on. So on top of every knit stitch in the second row, you knit a purl knit stitch in the third row. For every purl stitch in the second row you knit a knit stitch in the third row.

Row 4 is the same as row 3. If you have ended your third row with a knit stitch start the fourth row with a knit stitch again. Then a purl stitch, a knit stitch and so on.

In row 5 you start the pattern again from row 1.
