Seed vs. Moss Stitch: What’s the Difference?
Look at the amazing things you can do with a little imagination and the simple seed stitch!
In this popular post, I talk about the differences between Seed and Moss stitch and why they are my absolute favorites.
I’m a huge fan of taking “brilliantly simple” stitch patterns and really digging in and exploring all that they have to offer.
Check out this post. and watch the video too, because I play with a variety of swatches and ways to use these versatile stitches so you can have fun all weekend long. Enjoy!
What’s on Kara’s Needles
Where do I even start? I always have multiple projects going at one time, and unfortunately, sometimes a few get abandoned. Sound familiar?
Currently, I’m in the mood for making kids hats, because they are so low-commitment and making one in just a weekend is a cinch.
The beginnings of my kids hat…
I worked the band with a Twisted Rib pattern. I just started a few rounds of the hat body, which is a Diagonal Madeira Lace pattern.
Close up Twisted Rib on the hat band.
With a worsted-weight yarn, I casted on 84 stitches with a size U.S. #8 needle. I’m working with just two stitch patterns: Twisted Rib for the band, worked for 2 inches; and Diagonal Madeira Lace for the hat body. Easy peasy!
Happy Fibery Friday!
