My question is :
I am knitting a dog sweater and the pattern says easy but for some reason I am a little confused (although it doesn’t take much sometimes… ) The back of sweater part starts with seed stitch. So I believe it is k1 p1 until end and then start with opposit stitch on other needle? After I cast on my stitches, should I knit 1 full row then next row start seed stitch?
Please keep in mind I am a beginner
it is no problem to do seed stitch form the first row. Just do it.
you CAN knit or purl one entire row. Some knitters like that for a fancier showing of the cast on edge.
But if the pattern says seed stitch form the beginning: just k1 p1 till the end, then do the next row making a knit where a purl appears and the other way around (as normal in seed stitch).
You may be a beginner but you got it just right: that is what the pattern wants at the same time there would be options. I vote for the starting without a base row.
You would just start the seed st on the first row after the Cast on.
