C3F = Hold three stitches to the front, knit three off the left needle then knit off the three stitches from cable needle.C3B = Hold three stitches to the back, knit three off the left needle then knit off the three stitches from cable needle.Seed (Irish Moss) Pattern (Multiple of 5 at each end)

Odd Rows: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1

Even Rows: k1, p1, k1, p1, k1

Note: To create a moss stitch you need to knit the purls and purl the knits. So just make sure that you are doing opposite what you see. Otherwise you will end up with a 1 x 1 rib. Not the same thing.

 

k1tbl = k1 stitch in the back loop
