Day 7 and the Big Fat Seeds
Biggest yarn ever knitted in seed stitch. I used Lion Brand Big, but I don't think it's being made any more. Aim for 2 stitches to the inch to get the same look. I'm betting Wool Ease Thick n Quick and Wool Ease Worsted held together would come pretty close.
The trick here is sewing in the ends. I had to split a lot of yarns before I felt comfortable that it wouldn't work it's way back out.
For new knitters, seed stitch is just alternating knits and purls on every row. The first row is k1, p1 across. On all following rows, knit the purls and purl the knits.
