Moss Stitch is not only a beautiful stitch but it creates a nice solid fabric, perfect for scarves, blankets, washcloths, and more. This stitch has been referred to by many names, such as the Woven stitch, the Linen Stitch, or even the Granite stitch but whatever you refer to it as this is a fun stitch to create. The basic stitches in this pattern are the single crochet and the chain stitch. If you have these stitches down, you can create this lovely pattern with ease.

• This pattern uses the single and the chain crochet stitch
• The Moss stitch is created by placing a single crochet stitch in the chain stitch in one row and a chain stitch over a single stitch in the next row.


The Moss Stitch| How to Crochet can be created using any type of yarn and the corresponding crochet hook.

I used the Brava Tweed Yarn from WeCrochet/Knit Picks. It’s a soft 4-weight yarn that is 97% acrylic yarn with 3% Viscose. This is Hypoallergenic, hard-wearing, and machine washable yarn.


Perfect for berets, sweaters, blankets, and more. It may be helpful to grab a sturdy yarn while learning this stitch but grab your favorite yarn and hook and let’s get started on this lovely.

Round 2:

Single crochet in the chain-1 space from the previous row, *chain 1; skip 1 stitch; single crochet stitch next chain-1 space; repeat from * to the end of the row.

The last stitch will be a single crochet stitch. (Worked into the space between the chain-2 turning chain and the single crochet from the previous row.)

R2 is the repeating row for the pattern. You will continue following the steps from row 2 to complete the pattern.

This pattern looks great with a yarn color change. Either row to row or in color blocks.
