To knit your own Seed Stitch Wrap in Worsted Twist you’ll need…

  • 9 skeins of Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist, 100% merino wool. Each skein is 164 yards/ 100 grams; approximately 1476 yards required. From the top, these colors are Timeless Navy, Peacock Blue, Desert Blue, Ice Blue, Oyster Gray, Sea Salt, Heirloom White, Ballet Pink and Super Pink. (NOTE: We no longer offer Worsted Twist, but choose from one of our other worsted/aran weight yarns.)
  • US 8 (5 mm), straight or 24 or 32-inch circular needles


17 stitches = 4 inches in seed stitch


Approximately 22 inches wide x 80 inches long


The color order is pictured and listed above in the Materials section.


With the first color, cast on 99 stitches. We used a basic Long Tail Cast On.

Row 1: *K1, p1, repeat from * to last stitch, k1.

Repeat Row 1 for each row until end of skein.

Change to the second color at the beginning of the next row and repeat Row 1 until end of skein.

Repeat with each color, making sure to always change colors on the same side.

When you are nearly finished with the ninth skein, bind off in pattern.

Weave in the ends and you’re finished!
