I am going to start work on a scarf shortly and thought I'd do it in seed stitch. (I mostly do garter stitch or stockinette stitch.) But I am clearly having problems with the steps.
I start off by casting on and then doing a row of knit stitches, followed by a row of knit one, purl one. Then on the second row of the pattern, purl one, knit one. I do slip the first stitch of the row and purl the last so I get that nice braided edge, but maybe I shouldn't? Is that not compatible with the seed stitch?
I have to be doing something wrong though - it's a hideous mess. It doesn't look anything like what I see online.
I have attached a picture (sorry for orientation). I know it's not much of a sample, but I am too frustrated and confused to do much more!
Your help is much appreciated!
