moss stitch pattern

Hi all,
Haven't been around for a while! But I can finally knit without pain!! YIPEE I had carpal tunnel surgery last week and can knit up a storm again! YIPEE

my question is I am working on a pattern Moss Stitch Scarf and the instructions say

Stitch Guide
Seed Stitch : Multiple of 2 sts + 1
All rows : k1 p1* rep from * end k1

does that mean knit the whole scarf in k1 p1 ending with k1

i guess what is confusing me is the multiple of 2 sts +1

Thanks for your help

Yes it is known by the two names.

Thats just to confuse the newbies who are already confused enough

The problem comes in when people call seed stitch moss stitch, or you're from the wrong side of the ocean from the pattern writer.

Ahhhh! So what I call Moss Stitch is what people on the other side of the pond call Seed Stitch.

Thank you for the explaination Ingrid and now I have a new stitch to try out - American Moss Stitch.
