I just finished up the back of the Seed Stitch Shell from the Summer 05 issue of Vogue Kntting. I'm using Katia Pisco, which is knitting into a really nice fabric. My only complaint is that the yarn has a tendency to split if I'm not careful. Is anyone else working on the seed stich shell? I'd love to hear how yours is coming along!

Is the pattern right? I love that shell but was hesitant to try it after the first pattern in the magazine was incomplete.

I am almost finished. I used Berroco Pronto in aqua and just need to finish seaming and then the crochet finish around the neckline and arm. The pattern seems fine to me. I tightened up the gauge (used a size 9 needle and then knit in a bigger size), but it seems to have worked out great.

I too will be doing the seed stitch shell in Katia Pisco. I was looking at the yarn and it does look like it has the tendency to split.

But the colors are great. I'm going to do mine in Lime. And the yarn has a great feel - lightweight and soft for summer.

Did you have to make adjustments to needle size to make gauge for the pattern?

I'm doing mine in lime too! (well, I'm doing one in lime, and may do another in Waterfall, if I'm not totally sick of seed stitch by the end!!)

I used the size needle called for in the pattern, and was able to make gauge (barely!). I swatched with one size up, but that ended up making the knit fabric way too loose and gauge was slightly too big. Even using the recommended needle size, the fabric is fairly loose, but not holey, and I really like the drape of the resulting fabric.

Karen - please post pics when you are done! :)
