The knit seed stitch is a great next stitch to learn after the stockinette and garter stitches. It uses knits and purls to create reversible texture that’s great for all sorts of projects. It’s also one of the new knit stitches that doesn’t curl!
The knit seed stitch is a very versatile stitch that’s easily worked with all yarn weights. Pair it with a smooth yarn to really let the texture be the focus, or try a lightly textured yarn to add even more texture to your project.
