Alternate Seed Stitch
Video of this pattern can be found here
This is a stitch pattern that has great texture. It's very similar to the traditional Seed Stitch. You are still doing a single crochet and a double crochet. You're just not doing them in the SAME stitch. You just alternate between the two stitches.
This pattern is great for a beginner because it's something other then just doing one stitch but also great for someone more experienced. It definitely does not bore.
I changed yarns so you can see how it looks when you do. It looks as good as the traditional seed stitch.
