The Moss Stitch

Meet the Moss Stitch (aka Linen Stitch).  As part of the Mesh Category, this stitch is Offset Single Crochet Mesh.

The Moss Stitch, and its close relation Single Crochet Mesh, are great stitch when you want flexible fabric that is still dense.  Gauge is slightly wider and shorter than Single Crochet.

You Will Need:

Materials:  I used Hikoo Simpliworsted by Skacel.  Worsted Weight (4).  Superwash wool blend.
Tools:  Since I used Worsted Weight Yarn, I grabbed my trusty H-8/5.0mm
Skills:  Chain (CH), Skip (SK), Single Crochet (SC).  Working in chain-1 space (ch-1 sp).

The Moss Stitch

Worked over an even number of stitches with a two row repeat

Foundation Row:  Chain an even number of stitches.
Row 1:  CH 1, SK 1. SC to end.
(Or, make one row of foundation single crochet)

Row 2:  CH 2, SK 2.  SC 1.  (CH 1, SK 1, SC 1) to end.
Row 3:  CH 1, SK 1.  In first ch-1 sp, SC 1.  (CH 1, SK 1, in ch-1 sp, SC 1) to end.  SC 1 in last stitch.

Continue to repeat Rows 2 & 3.


Worked over an odd number of stitches with a one-row repeat.

Row 1:  As above.
Row 2:  CH 2, SK 2, SC 1. (CH 1, SK 1, SC 1) to end.  In last stitch, SC 1.
Row 3:  Repeat Row 2, working in each ch-1 space across.  SC 1 in last stitch.

The Danica Quilt
