The Seed stitch is done on a multiple of 4 + 3 stitches.
1st row: *knit 2, slip 1 as if to purl B (= slip 1 as if to purl without working it, and weave in), knit 1*, repeat always from * to *, knit 1 to finish off
2nd row: purl 1, * purl 1, slip 1 as if to purl B, purl 2 *
3rd row: * 3 Cross to the Right 2/1 (= keep 2 stitches hanging on the back of the work, knit 1, knit the hanging stitches), knit 1*, knit 1
4th row – 8th row: purl
5th row: knit 1, *knit 1, slip 1 as if to purl B, knit 2 *
6th row: * purl 2, slip 1 as if to purl B purl 1 *, purl 1
7th row: knit 1, *knit 1, 3 Cross to the Left 2/1 (= keep 1 stitch hanging at the front of the work, knit 2, knit the hanging stitch) *
