Fun, Flattering Seed Stitch Patterns

Grow your knitting repertoire with seed stitch patterns for every season

Get 10 Seed Stitch Patterns in this Dynamic Collection

From handbags to pillows to sweaters, our dynamic collection of seed stitch patterns is ready for your needles as part of your I Like Knitting Gold membership.

Not many knitting stitches are as easy and versatile as the seed stitch. Simply by alternating knits and purls every other stitch and every other row or round, you can produce a very pretty, textured piece of knitting that lays flat and doesn’t add bulk. You can knit an entire pillow or garment from the seed stitch or use it wherever you need a flat but interesting edging, such as on button bands or surrounding a blanket.

Beginning knitters like the seed stitch because it’s an easy variation to learn that looks more complicated—and impressive! Seasoned knitters know that the seed stitch flatters just about everyone and plays well with other stitches and motifs. It’s a great stitch to keep in your back pocket for times when you want to give texture—but not too much—to your knitting project. Or when you need a delicate-looking stitch that will stand up to use without stretching.

Now that you’ve been reminded of the seed stitch’s virtues, we’d like to introduce you to our dynamic collection of Seed Stitch patterns. You’ll find a mix of beginner to Intermediate designs, each one showing you a different way to apply the seed stitch. There are sweaters, tunics, accessories, and two pillow designs—one with crystals! We even include 2019’s ‘Top Pattern’ on I Like Knitting.

And we can’t leave out the 700 + patterns you get in the I Like Knitting library, where you’ll find everything from home decor to stunning scarves to beautiful tops for every season and so much more.

Layered on the Looks

When it’s chilly outside but a full sweater is too warm, reach for the Winter Prairie Vest. This open, tunic-length topper is perfect for layering. Alternating rows of seed stitch and a lace pattern add subtle interest to this intermediate pattern. The body of this vest is worked back and forth in one piece to the armholes, then divided for working the fronts and back separately. We give you downloadable schematics to help you follow along. Wear this vest open or belted with skinny jeans or a midi skirt with boots—either way, you’ll rock it.

Weekend Wrap-up

What’s better than a beginner scarf pattern that’s easy and cute? One you can finish in a weekend! The Autumn True Stripes Scarf pattern is made up almost entirely of seed stitch, except for the row when you change color. Worked with bulky yarn, this snuggly scarf is long enough to wrap around your neck twice. But because the seed stitched scarf lays flat, it won’t feel or look bulky. We show a pretty medley of fallish colors, but you can change the palette to match a favorite coat, school colors, or whatever makes you feel warm and happy.

Double Your Summer Fun

What a cute tote to take to the seaside or on a cruise! Made with the double seed stitch, the 9” x 13” Bon Voyage Tote will carry all your summer essentials. The double seed stitch gives this striped tote texture, and the jute handles add contrast. To make this intermediate-level pattern, you work two side panels, the front panel, and the base, then stitch it all together and add the handles. Then you just grab your tote and go!

Not Just a Pretty Face

Here’s a pillow pattern with attributes beyond good looks. First, the Scarlet Cabled Jumbo Pillow pattern is easy and goes with any décor. Second, this pattern is a great teaching tool: you—or your student—will learn to make cables and integrate them with seed stitch, reverse stockinette stitch, and buttonholes. Plus, the pattern is easy to memorize, a delight to make, and it makes a great a gift—if you can bear to let it go.

You’ll Never Forget This

There’s nothing cuter than a baby elephant—except your favorite baby in our Edgar the Elephant Romper. This intermediate pattern includes a tail, a colorful collar, and a hat with ears and a trunk. The romper features seed stitching on the cuffs and button placket. What a wonderful gift to make for a baby or toddler in your life. Imagine how cute they’ll look at Halloween, a trip to the zoo, a special occasion, or just for dress-up!

Don’t forget, as well, that this and every pattern in I Like Knitting comes complete with:

  • A list of necessary yarn and tools you’ll need
  • Row-by-row instructions
  • Special stitch instructions
  • Pattern notes
  • Detailed, full-color photography

Whether you are just starting out with knitting or you’re an advanced knitter, you’ll find a seed stitch pattern that’s right for you, and we’ll be right beside you, with plenty of tutorials and instructions.

For Your Little Jewel

All babies are precious, but they’ll feel extra special wrapped in the Azure Diamonds Baby Blanket. This lace blanket with rounded edges is worked primarily in pseudo lily of the valley and a heart motif. Together, these stitches create clusters of bobble-like structures nestled in the center of lace blocks. Adding a seed stitch border will help keep the edges flat. Appropriate for intermediate-level knitters, this pattern comes with downloads for a stitch key and three pattern charts.

Popular/Poplar

When fall nips the air, reach for the Poplar Cardi and wrap yourself in comfort. This easy pattern was named for the bright gold color of poplar trees in the fall. But you could also call it the ‘pop-u-lar’ cardi, because it was voted Top Pattern on I Like Knitting in 2019. It’s easy to see why. Not only is this oversized cardigan sweater cozy—and looks great with jeans and boots—it’s constructed with only one seam. Worked from cuff to center back in two pieces, this project is a breeze to knit.

Forever Flattering

You’d have to search far and wide for a tunic more flattering than this one. With a flowy fit and subtle but interesting texture, the River Valley Tunic pattern will be your go-to top for fall. This intermediate pattern is worked flat from the bottom up. The front is worked as one piece to armholes and then left and right panels are worked separately to shape the V-neck. Sleeves are worked flat. Pair this tunic with skinny jeans, leggings, or a long, slim skirt—any way you wear it, you’ll look chic and feel comfortable.

Berry Bright and Beautiful

The Cranberry Harvest Sweater pattern ticks a lot of boxes: tailored enough for work, comfortable enough for the weekend, worked a bright color that will cheer you fall through winter, and just enough seed stitch texture to make the sweater—and you—stand out from the crowd. This pullover sweater pattern is worked flat from the bottom up. The front is worked as one piece to armholes and then left and right panels are worked separately to shape V-neckline. We give you five downloadable stitch charts and schematics to help you pull it all together.

Sparkle Aplenty

All it takes is seed stitch, stockinette, and a bit of bling to create this embellished pillow that makes you feel like a queen. The Royal Rhinestone Pillow is an easy, knit-in-one-piece project with a sparkling center motif made by attaching rhinestones with clear nylon thread. The motif sits on top of a stockinette square framed by seed stitch; seed stitch covers the back of the pillow. Of course, you deserve a pillow like this—keeping it next to your crown, perhaps? But the Royal Rhinestone Pillow also makes a wonderful gift for someone special.
