Mmmm...Seed stitch. It is simply the most beautiful stitch to knit, in my humble opinion.
I think it just exudes softness and beauty.
I think my daughter looks pretty cute in her scarf as it coincidentally matches all her winter apparel. Awesome.
Below is my son staring pensively at the ducks milling about the icy pond. I made this scarf for him about three years ago.
He still wears it!
His seed stitch scarf was the first scarf/wearable item I ever made (knitting, sewing, gluing, you name it).
When he wears it, we call him The Red Baron.
So he gave his sister the moniker, The Pink Baron (though it's kinda purplish. But The Purplish Baron doesn't sound so good.).
US 7 knitting needles
1 skein of worsted weight yarn
Cast On 29 stitches.
Row 1: K1, *p1, k1; repeat from * until end of the row. Finish the row with a knit stitch.
Repeat Row 1 until you finish the skein, or until desired length.
Bind Off, weave in loose ends.
If you are making one for a toddler and would like the scarf to be less wide, CO 19 stitches instead.
If you are interested in making a something for your husband or boyfriend (or even yourself), check out my newest creation:
