So when Anna and I decided to publish a book about Reversible Knitting Stitches, that was our starting point – to really explore every stitch and to add a good number of project photos too. In short, we wanted this to be not just a stitch book but instead a reference sourcebook on reversible knitting.
This is Seed Stitch and it rightfully takes the first place in our new book as it has always been one of my favourites. It is such a neat and precise stitch forming into a wonderfully regular dotted pattern. It adds stability when used as a border, but is also a strong stitch in its own right so can be used for bags, placemats and other items.
The example page above shows the format that we have used throughout the book, with:
- a difficulty symbol to show if this is a good stitch for a beginner or a more experienced knitter,
- photographs of both the front and the back of the stitch, and
- stitch charts together with full line‐by‐line instructions, so you can choose which you prefer.
To help illustrate these qualities, we have included photos of more than 80 different projects through the book to show actual examples of the stitch in use. For example, in Anna's lovely Baby Blue Sweater above, she has used Seed Stitch as a pretty trim for the cuffs, neckline and lower edge.
I’ll be back next time with some more photographs from the book.
Until then – Happy Reversible Knitting!
