This is a corrected version of the charts for Seed Stitch Bobbles & Leaves provided in the December 8, 2016 issue of my newsletter, One Good Deed Deserves Another & Don’t-Miss Events. A couple of errant purl stitches didn’t get into their proper place. These bobbles & leaves, added to I-cord, grouped or used individually, can create a variety of motifs and designs. Seed stitch will lay flat for easier sewing and provide texture and surface interest!
I have shown these on the hats made using the Napa Valley Hat recipe provided in the December 1, 2016 issue of my newsletter, Set Your Knitting Plan for 2017 and Achieve New Heights. Seed stitch and it’s cousins are great for sewing appliques to because the textured surface both absorbs the edges and gives plenty of spots to hide your stitches.
These simple bobbles and leaves can be used in any number of ways to create a wealth of floral forms.
Want to learn how to make and sew these embellishments and create knitting masterpieces? Maybe you want to learn to do the applied i-cord trim? Join me on my page on Facebook on December 14 at 3 pm. I’ll be available for an hour to demonstrate and answer questions. In the meantime, download the corrected version of the Seed Stitch Bobbles and Leaves charts, get the Napa Valley Hat Recipe, or find something else that needs a special flourish or finish using Seed Stitch Bobbles & Leaves.
