What is Seed Stitch?

Seed stitch consists of single knits and purls that alternate horizontally and vertically. Seed stitch gets its name from the texture of the knitted fabric — the little purl bumps look like scattered seeds. Like garter stitch, seed stitch lies flat, making it a good edging for a sweater border and cuffs.

How do you pick up multiple dropped stitches?

Stick a needle, pencil, safety pin, paperclip, toothpick, split-ring stitch marker, or whatever you have handy through the loop. This will stop the stitch dropping any further. Take a deep breath, grab a cup of coffee, swear a bit, or do whatever helps when you stub your toe, and you’re ready to fix the dropped stitch.

How do you knit a garter stitch edge?

Now you’ll have a tidy row of stitches on the needle, and can knit into each. Insert working needle (your regular sized project needle) from front to back, and knit normally into each stitch across the edge. And then you’ll have an edge like this. And with a few more rows, it all comes together into a flat fabric.

Where do you pick up stitches in knitting?

Picking up stitches at the end of your work (at the cast on edge) is very similar to working on the vertical edge. The only difference is where you insert the hook. You will again work from what will be the top right stitch. Insert your hook into the V of your knit stitches.

Do you pick up one stitch between each Garter Ridge?

Nope. You still need to account for that row vs. stitch gauge; unless you’re going down several needle sizes, you just do. Because you have more rows per inch in garter stitch than you do in stockinette stitch, a good rule of thumb is to pick up one stitch between each garter ridge, as shown below.

Do you bind off stitches on garter stitch?

Depending on the stitch count you’re aiming for, you may need/want to fudge a bit on the cast on and bind off edges, where there aren’t true bumps. Now you’ll have a tidy row of stitches on the needle, and can knit into each.
