How to Knit Moss Stitch

Moss stitch is an elongated version of seed stitch. Instead of alternating the pattern every row (as you do for seed stitch), for moss stitch, you work 2 rows of the same sequence of knits and purls before you alternate them.

  1. Cast on an uneven number of sts.

    An uneven number of sts makes this pattern symmetrical — either side can be the right side.

  2. Follow this stitch pattern:

    Rows 1 and 4: K1, * p1, k1; rep from * to end of row.

    Rows 2 and 3: P1,* k1, p1; rep from * to end of row.

  3. Repeat Rows 1–4 to create the pattern.

Knitting is really nothing more than pulling a series of loops through loops. How you pull the loops — the direction of the needle, the order in which you work the stitches, the colors you incorporate, and so on — contributes to the wide variety of fabrics that you can create.
