Seed Stitch Blocks (multiple of 7 sts plus 5)
Note: the instructions below are a generic description of how to execute this stitch pattern. For a single repeat, you'd only need twelve stitches but you'd have a VERY narrow piece! In the example shown, there are four repeats of the stitch, so to make a swatch that looks like the one shown, you need to cast on 33 stitches (4 x the multiple of 7 stitches needed for a single repeat of the pattern plus 5 extra - (4 x 7) + 5 = 33.)
