Moss Crochet Stitch

The moss stitch consists of two basic crochet stitches we’re all very familiar with, namely the slip stitch and the half double crochet. It makes a close weave, all over fabric that is a perfect choice for many projects. The pattern detail created by alternating slip stitches with half double crochets is decorative, yet simple, making this a uniquely versatile choice for all types of crafts, clothing items and things for the home.

Foundation:  Make a chain that is a multiple of 2 stitches.
Step 1:  Alternate (slip stitch, half double crochet), beginning in the 2nd chain from your hook, all the way across the row.
Step 2:  Chain 1, turn; repeat Step 1 across row

Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for pattern.
That’s all there is to it, good people. Until next time, happy crochetingJ
