Problem with seed stitch in the round
I'm trying to knit a cowl using seed stitch on circular needles and I'm having such trouble with it. I've cast on 45 stitches and done a pattern of K1P1, with K1 for the last stitch of each row. But I keep getting a tiny rib pattern instead of the seed stitch pattern.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong and it's driving me crazy. I've recounted my cast on stitches five times, thinking that maybe I cast on an even number instead of an odd number. But I always come up with 45.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong? I've frogged this three times already and I want to figure out how to do this right before I frog it again. My poor yarn is getting all fuzzy and worn from frogging so many times.

I'm wondering if it's something I'm doing wrong when I join the first stitch. As I'm doing each row, it looks as if I'm knitting the purls and purling the knits, but when I look at the stitches, it looks like 1x1 rib. Help!
