I have a stupid question. I am working on a hat and it calls for seed stitch. I know normally it consists of two rows- k1,p1 to end then p1, k1 to end. Since I am working in the round and I am not turning my rows should I should continue with k1,p1 round after round?

Is it 1x1 ribbing if I do k1,p1, p1, k1 in the round?

thanks<3

A walk-in closet full of yarn isn't TOO much...

Hmm.. I THINK you just have to be sure you're knitting your purls and purling your knits from the previous round.  Again, I THINK. heh Wink

That's correct. Learn what a knit st and a purl st look like and on the 2nd round knit the purl sts and purl the knit sts as you see them on the needle.

nope, 1*1 ribbing in the round is k1, p1 on even number of stitches:)

It depends- do you have an even number of stitches or odd? I'm gonna guess even, since if odd you would wind up with 2 knit stitches at the end. So you should k1, p1 first round and p1, k1 next round. Incidently, does anyone know how to decrease in seed stitch in the round while keeping in the pattern? This totally eludes me!

Fudge.

Just do the best you can. Here's 3 possibilities-

K P   K P   K P 
  P    P K   p K (one dec, you have 2 Ps in a row)
  k     p     k p (one dec, you're back in pattern)

Or

K P   K P   K P
  P     K    p k (two decreases right next to another, you stay in pattern)

Or

K P  K  P  K P
   P     K  P K (one double decrease, I'm not sure how this would look though)

when I decrease in seed stitch I do 2 decreases right next to each other k2tog and p2tog this keeps it in pattern without it looking too fudgy
