In this article, you will discover how the Seed-Pearl Block Stitch Pattern produces a simple, understated pattern that is suitable for almost any knitting project.
Above all, the horizontal and vertical arrangement of the purl “dots” gives the fabric a subtle square effect.
That is to say, this makes it ideal for replacing stockinette stitches in any of your knitting projects.
In addition, another thing that is particularly great with this Seed-Pearl Block Stitch is that it can also be worked crosswise.
Hence, this is perfect for when you are knitting garments sideways.
