Seed Stitch - HELP!


I am a new knitter and I am attempting a patter that uses seed stitch. I understand what I need to do, but when I do it, it doesn’t look right. It seems like when I do the purl stitch something bad happens. Also, I use the long-tail cast, but I think that is causing some of the problem. Should I use a different cast method for this type of stitch?

Any help on this is appreciated!

Your cast on method shouldn’t matter. When you bring the yarn to the front of your work to purl and then to the back to knit, make sure you keep your tension the same. Otherwise, your stitches can look a little wonky.
