Lattice Seed Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

The Lattice Seed Stitch Knitting Pattern creates a wide braided basketweave design woven atop a seeded background. It is an impressive texture that looks stunning knitted up as a blanket, scarf, or pillow.

This 18-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern looks like a complicated cabled design but is actually achieved with a simple combination of knits and purls.

CLOSER LOOK at the Lattice Seed Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Lattice Seed Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this simple pattern.

There are vertical stripes of Stockinette and horizontal stripes of Garter stitches that interweave to create this visually interesting design. The latticework is atop a background bed of the Seed Stitch.

You can see that this is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design while the wrong (back) side does not.
