Beginner knitters can attempt to Knit Chevron Seed (Moss) Stitch as it is made up of knit and purl stitches only.
The chevron seed stitch pattern provides texture to any knitted item. Purl stitches form the lovely zig-zag on a stocking stitch background.
If you pay a bit attention, you'll have the stitch under the belt in no time.

The pattern is knit over 4 rows in multiples of 8 stitches.
The yarn weight and size of knitting needles, will depend on the project you are attempting with the stitch.
what you'll need:
- Knitting Needles (I used 4mm, 6US, 8UK)
- Elle Double Knit (DK) yarn / Light worsted yarn
I found this lovely DK Merino wool on Amazon, and it will knit out this stitch pretty well.
