The Seed Stitch is one of the first stitches that everyone beginning knitting learns. The distinctive, bumpy look to the knit is what earns it its name. This stitch is not only simple, but very popular for the texture and versatility. There is very little that the seed stitch does not work on, from attire to decor. New knitters, once you've mastered the knit and purl, this is your next project. Try a dishcloth in seed stitch with some cotton yarn, or knit an entire scarf.

A fab tutorial for beginners looking to learn new stitches, the instructions are really clear. It takes slightly longer to knit in seed stitch but I love the finish of it and for some patterns I think it is worth taking the extra time. There are plenty of patterns on this site which use seed stitch so you can put your new skills to the test.

I love this tutorial. It is very easy to understand, how to do it.

This is an absolutely wonderful tutorial for beginners! I had alway admired the seed stitch and this video made it very easy to understand. I can definitely see myself coming back to reference this in the future.

another excellent tutorial for beginners. Where were you when I started knitting? Certainly helping my eleven-year-old and thirteen-year-old (she appreciates the left-handed purling tutorial too.)

This was really helpful! I just started knitting and I've learn the knit stitch and how to purl, so I'm looking for a new pattern to try. I love how the seed stitch looks with a chunky yarn!

excellent video
