Moss or seed stitch
It is a double front vest with a moss stitch pattern with waves of bubble look. However, it can be confusing and could be a seed stitch, refer moss vs seed stitch. So, from this article it is a Scottish seed stitch. Can someone shed some light on these?
I think my moss stitch is really a seed stitch. Its just a reverse pearl and knit which is the same both sides. The bubbles gives it a nice pattern and it is an easy pattern to knit. I think it is not the American Irish moss stitch. I’ll get my husband to read up on this!
Simple seed stitch is a textured and compact stitch. They are sometimes referred to as fabric stitches which are basically a stocking stitch which is interspersed with purl stitches. Being a stocking stitch, it makes the fabric really warm and cosy. It is also perfect for knitting a scarf.
Does seed stitch take more yarn than stockinette stitch? It does. All knitting patterns that have a bit of structure and are a bit thicker needs more yarn than the thin and flat stockinette stitch.
The seed stitch is a classic textured knitting stitch. By alternating knits and purls every stitch and changing their location after two rows. This stitch produces an almost shifted ribbing or tiny basketweave patterned fabric.
Moss stitch is an elongated version of seed stitch. Instead of alternating the pattern every row (as you do for seed stitch), for moss stitch, you work 2 rows of the same sequence of knits and purls before you alternate them. Cast on an uneven number of stitches. Moss stitch refer here
