4. Repeat the last two rows forever!

Note: When knitting the round, it’s important to mark the beginning of your round because when you get to the end of your round it’ll be something like this: …k1, p1, slip stich marker, p1, k1… So you’ll do purl stitches (or knit, depending on what round you’re on) and it might feel weird, but its just the beginning of a new round!


And that’s it! Painless isn’t it. Okay go forth and seed stitch!
