I love the look of the Moss Stitch. It is so simple and easy to do, but has a very neat look and texture. It uses 2 of the easiest stitches, single crochet & chain stitch.
For this pattern you could use any worsted weight yarn. I used Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek (Low-Pill Fiber) in the color Red/Gray/Multi. And, if y’all really like this colorway, don’t get too mad at me because this color is discontinued 🙁 There are still lots of pretty colors in the Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek.
If y’all are wondering why I used a discontinued color to make a pattern, the reason is very simple. Y’all remember all that yarn that was marked down like 75% off at Hobby Lobby here a few months ago? Well, I went overboard, surprise ;-), and I still have quite a bit of it left over. I was needing some new patterns and wanted to use up all that clearance yarn. Here’s a picture of me and my haul that day
So, y’all may see a lot of new patterns with some of this yarn, LOL!
Anyway, back to the pattern. I used 2 skeins for this triangle scarf because that was all that I had bought. If I was to make another, I’d probably use 3 skeins. My triangle scarf is 38” across and 20” long (without the tassels.) For me, the scarf fits (but I’m smaller, only 5′ tall 🙂 ) and if you like your triangle scarfs a little bigger add the extra skein to it. I used one complete skein on the scarf and before I added the other to it, I made the tassels so I could use every last bit for the scarf. You could also add a couple extra skeins and make a shawl too.
For the tassels, I used my Boye Tassel maker. I made my tassels 3.75” long. I got the Boye Pom Pom Tassel Maker from Hobby Lobby and I used my 40% off coupon! If y’all haven’t already guessed, I LOVE bargains!!!

You Should have 4 st (I only count the single crochets as stitches)

Repeat row 3 until you run out of yarn. Each row on should add 2 extra stitches per row.
Weave in ends and attach the tassels in each corner.
Happy Crocheting! 🙂
