How to Knit the Lattice Seed Stitch- this wide, braided basketweave looks intricate, but it’s simple to knit using only knit and purl stitches. Perfect for beginners!
The Lattice Seed Stitch consists of only knits and purls. It’s ideal for a quick knit with loads of texture.
The Lattice Seed Stitch is not a reversible stitch because the right and wrong sides are different. This stitch is great for patterns where the back of the work isn’t featured, like pillows, throws, or hats.
