Welcome newbie from a nearly newbie!

A seed stitch is where you have a knit 1, purl 1 pattern, and it's reversible as well. It's not a ribbing because the knits and purls don't line up. It sorta looks like this:

v~v~v~v~
~v~v~v~v
v~v~v~v~

Clear as mud?

Seed stitch is K1, P1, K1, P1...etc, then the next row you do the opposite (knit the knits, purl the purls). Video here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/videos/stitches/seed-stitch-english-rds.mpg).

Using an odd number of CO stitches makes it easier. Then you can always start with a knit and not have to remember what it was on the previous row. Works for me. :roflhard:
