You asked: What is Seed Stitch?

What is a seed stitch pattern in knitting?

Seed stitch knitting is a common, easy stitch pattern in knitting. It is made by alternating knit stitches and purl stitches within a row and between rows. It is called seed stitch because the stitches create little bumps that may look like seeds. Seed stitch is identical on both sides and lies flat.

What is the other name for seed stitch?

A seed stitch (also known as isolated back stitch, seeding stitch, seed fillling stitch or speckling stitch) is in fact a series of tiny straight stitches or back stitches taken at all angles and in any direction, but more or less of an equal length.

Does Seed stitch Curl?

No seed stitch does not curl as stockinette stitch does. The reason for this is that you alternate knit and purl stitches which evens out the tension in the fabric.
