Soft Moss Stitch. I’m not sure what I love most: the amazing texture of this beautiful stitch or it’s lovely name.
The soft moss stitch is a perfect example of how simple stitches can combine to form something amazing! In cotton yarn this would make a great dishcloth pattern. Or maybe a nice, warm sweater fabric on a cold day. This is a fun stitch swatch to add to your stash.
- Any size hook. I used US G6/4 mm crochet hook (Did you know you can purchase my go-to hooks on Amazon?)
- A yarn weight that works with your hook size. I used worsted weight yarn.
- tapestry needle and scissors
Remember, you can make your swatch with any size hook and yarn weight. Read all about How to Swatch Here.
