## Anyone Know Which Stitch This Is?

I bought a blanket awhile ago and it said it was made in a sweater stitch. I'm not sure what that is and can't find it. Here's a picture. It's as clear as I could get it. I don't know what I would use it for. It drapes...that's pretty much it's function, other than holding body heat well. It wouldn't be good as a sweater unless you wanted one that would probably keep growing as you wear it.

Does anyone know the stitch that was used? Thanks.

### Seed/moss stitch is it! I

Seed/moss stitch is it! I just knitted a swatch and it matched up perfectly. Thanks!

### Properly speaking, it is

Properly speaking, it is called "seed stitch". "Moss stitch" is worked with 2 rows being the same; an elongated version of the seed stitch. And then there is double seed or double moss where you work K2, P2. But it depends if your are British or American.

### So, Tallguy, which do you

So, Tallguy, which do you think my picture is? Seed or moss or something else?

### Moss/seed stitch. I have

Moss/seed stitch. I have never heard of an 'elongated' version and I have been knitting for 70 years. I'll have to knit a swatch and try it.

### OK, if I understand this...

OK, if I understand this...
Seed stitch =
odd rows (1k, 1p) repeated
even rows (1p, 1k) repeated
P the K's, K the P's on all rows

Moss stitch =
row 1 (1k, 1p) repeated
row 2 (1k, 1p) repeated (K the K's, P the P's)
row 3 and all odd rows (P the K's, K the P's)
row 4 and all even rows (K the K's, P the P's)

hope this helps

### No, they are both the same.

No, they are both the same. It is just that we English refer to it as 'moss' stitch.

### thanks for the clarification.

thanks for the clarification.

### My guess is that it is in

My guess is that it is in seed stitch - also known as moss stitch. A simple pattern to knit, if somewhat repetitive. Each row alternates knits and purls, staggering them so you don't create 1x1 ribbing.

### I agree...although it looks

I agree...although it looks very stretched out...
