How to knit double seed (moss) stitch in the round

In this DROPS video we show how to knit double seed (or moss) stitch in the round.

When you knit double seed st/moss st in the round on a circular needle you need to cast on a number of sts that can be divided by 4. Then you will get a nice transition between K and P sts all the way around, and you will not be able to see the beginning of the round.

You work alternately K 2 and P 2 all way around.
Round 1: work K2, P2 around
Round 2: work K2, P2 around
Round 3: work P2, K2 around
Round 4: work P2, K2 around
Repeat round 1.-4.

It's a good idea to place a marker at the beginning of the round. In our video we show the end of 2nd round, the transition to 3rd round, and then the beginning of 3rd round.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns using this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

Bonjour Comment faire les diminutions sur le point de riz double sur aiguilles circulaires. J'ai 96 mailles et je n'y arrive pas. J'ai des trous et je me retrouve avec du jersey par endroit. Existe-t'il une technique propre à ce point? Merci

Bonjour Mary, suivez bien les indications de votre modèle, en fonction de ce qui vous est indiqué, vous pourrez par exemple diminuer tout en continuant le motif comme avant, mais il ne se suivra pas avant/après les diminutions en raison de ces mêmes diminutions. Bon tricot!
