12 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Seed St with two strands held tog. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Hooded Seed Stitch Baby Blanket Reviewed by Marcie on 2013-08-20 **
I knitted this and it was extremely time consuming with all of the seed stitch and didn't even come out looking that nice. If I try this again I will probably just do a garter stitch to speed it up.
