Two-row knitting stitch: A combination of Seed stitch and Double Decreases

In this tutorial you’ll learn a lovely new stitch, great for knitting cowls, scarves and sweaters: It’s a combination of Seed stitch panels, that give it a rich texture and prevent the fabric from rolling up, and a new technique for making the double decrease.

This type of double decrease is quite special: It creates a very defined column of “v’s”, in a well designed vertical knitting stitch pattern, both textured and elegant.

Another advantage is that is a two-row stitch, with only a few easy steps to memorize, similar to the Easy Knitting stitch pattern for Baby clothing that we learned some time ago, and the Textured Stockinette stitch


And if you like knitting with circular needles, you’ll also find more instructions further down…

Two-row knitting stitch pattern:

A combination of Seed stitch

and Double Decreases

Using straight needles:

CO multiples of 10 + 2 stitches; i.e.: 10 * 3 = 30 + 2 = 32 stitches.

1º and every odd row: K1, *K1, (P1, K1) 3 times, P3*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K1.

2º and every even row (RS): K1, *yo, sl2-k1-p2sso, yo, K1, (P1, K1) 3 times*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K1.

These two rows from the pattern. Keep repeating them until the desired length is reached.

Using circular needles:

CO multiples of 10; i.e.: 10 * 2 = 20 stitches.

1º Row: *P1, (K1, P1) 3 times, K3*. Repeat from * to *, to end.

2º Row: *K1, (P1, K1) 3 times, yo, sl2-k1-p2sso, yo*. Repeat from * to *, to end.

This is the wrong side of the work:

PS: Before you go, I have two recommendations to make your lace knitting easier and more enjoyable:

1.- Use sharp tip knitting needles…they are very helpful when making decreases!

2.- Block your fabric as soon as you finish your knitting! The pattern will shine because the stitches will be 100 times more defined, crisp and flat! Get your blocking board and give your work a pro look 😉
