This has to be one of the easiest crochet stitches and yet its beauty and texture is just divine. If you can work a double crochet stitch (single crochet in US terms) you are going to LOVE this!
By incorporating different yarns and playing with the pattern you can create some stunning effects. But before we start going off piste, lets learn the basic Moss Stitch!
I am using uk terms and Sirdar DK Cotton for this tutorial because it gives great definition for you to be able to see the stitches and follow the pattern.
You will need at least 2 different coloured yarns (or more - you can use as many colours as you like)
We are practicing a new stitch so the size of your sample doesn't matter but the purposes of this tutorial I have started with a foundation chain of 50 stitches
Into chain 1 space from row below work 1 dc, then chain 1 then 1 dc into next chain 1 space from row below.
Repeat to the end.
Once you have mastered the basics of moss stitch have a go at playing with it.
