The Moss Stitch – Pattern Description
The cold season is here and today I am sharing the tutorial for a stitch that is perfect for this time of the year: The Moss Stitch.
The Moss Stitch is a two-row repeat crochet pattern constructed with clusters of double crochet nested in between the previous row’s double crochet clusters to create an offset pattern that is light and not completely solid. It works great for baby blankets, modern afghans, cardigans, and shawls.
The one-row repeat pattern is easy to remember and you will not need to reference the pattern once you made a few rows. There are no stitches to count either, it is the perfect project to make while watching your favorite TV show.
Scroll down for the step-by-step written and photo instructions and the video tutorial I made for those of you who are visual learners.

Starting Chain: This pattern requires you to chain multiples of 2chs. My starting chain is 28chs.
Row 1: Sc in 4th ch from hook, *ch1, sk1, sc in next*, repeat from * until the end of the row, turn.
Row 2: ch2, sc in the first ch1 space, *ch1, sk1, sc in ch1 space*, repeat until you have crocheted in the last ch1 space.
NOTE: For Row 2 only, the last ch1 space is the space created when you first skipped 3chs on Row 1.
Repeat row 2 until you have the required length
