Seriously.
Well, I don't know how to do either, but looking online, I found a page that illustrates how to knit and purl backwards...so using both alternately, wouldn't that be seed stitch backwards?

Just a thought...

Thank you, everyone, for the props!! I'm trying not to run outta steam on this one - it's actually my "Hope" wrap. I call it my Berkeley Dreamer - I knit and dream about my new life in the East Bay of CA, and all the things I want to achieve there. First thing came true, w/the new job Wish me luck on the rest...

ElenTikvah, you ROCK!! That site is actually an improvement on what I was doing for knitting backwards, and yeah, that purling backwards will totally help. I'll totally use it. Unfortunately my ol' Mac won't be able to read those videos (Windows Media), but I'll soon have a new one that will, yaHOOOO!!

Beautiful wrap, love the colors.

Here is a link to how to knit and purl backwards. I guess to do the seed stitch you would just alternate these stitches. Haven't tried it, but seems logical.

I didn't see the other post above.

Whoops! Haven't checked in a while, but looks like you (Merigold - great name, BTW) and Tik were exactly on the same track.

THAT is why I come to KH - for the friendliest, supportivest help around

I'm going to try backwards seed stitch this weekend in a spare moment, 'cause I'm visiting a bud w/a PC (vs. Mac) - I can see the videos, YEAAA!! Those nearby might want to back away - it'll be a bit like being novice knitter again...
