Lately I have a little obsession for Moss stitch so I’ve learned how to crochet it in 4 ways. I don’t have a project for now with this stitch, I’m still looking for the right yarn. But I definitely will make a cardigan and a scarf!

The moss stitch is very easy to crochet, if you are a beginner and you only know how to crochet the single crochet stitch this pattern is perfect for you. Is a textured stitch and it works wonderful for baby blankets (I think the granny square is perfect for this project), scarves (the moss stitch crocheted like a triangle and a right triangle works perfect), sweaters, cardigans, hats and for home decor (I think this stitch would look beautiful for pillows and throws for the sofa).

So here are the charts and the written patterns for the moss stitch crocheted like a granny square, two types of triangle and straight. Choose your favorite one and start your new project.

Leave me a comment with your idea for this stitch, I need an inspiration!

Abbreviations:   

ch= chain;

sl st= slip stitch;

st= stitch;

sc= single crochet;

The pattern uses US crochet terminology.
