Increasing with moss/seed stitch
Hi Everyone

I want to make myself a seed (or moss stitch as we call it in Australia) stitch jumper and I noticed there are increases on the sleeves - one stitch at each end of several rows (as per normal).

How do I increase in seed stitch and keep the actual pattern of the seed stitch? If seed stitch is K1, P1 and I add a stitch, how does it continue with the actual stitch? (Hope this is clear!)

Many thanks

Julie :D

What I usually do is try to make the increase in the stitch that would come next. If the row ends in a knit and I have to increase, I'd knit, purl into the last stitch, for example. It's not perfect, but as you incorporate the increases into the overall pattern, it looks like the stitches blend out from the seam and look fine.
