German translation:Gerstenkornmuster
Explanation:
I'm guessing -- it's hard to say without seeing the pattern (I have a hard time with English knitting terminology, it's something I do exclusively in German).

However, there is a Perlmuster and a Gerstenkornmuster, both consisting of alternating purl and knit stitches, and Gerstenkornmuster is about double the size of Perlmuster. "double seed stitch" kind of sounds like "Gerstenkornmuster"

Perlmuster: 1 M re., 1 M li. in jeder Reihe versetzt stricken.
Gerstenkornmuster: 1 M re., 1 M li. in jeder 2. Reihe versetzt stricken.

Ich denke, Gerstenkornmuster passt am besten. Es sind immer 2 rechte und 2 linke Maschen nebeneinander, und das in 2 Reihen (daher wohl das "double"), dann kommen 2 linke Maschen auf die beiden rechten und 2 rechte auf die linken, auch in 2 Reihen.
Vielen Dank!
