I love the moss stitch! If you have typically crocheted the moss stitch in just a straight piece and maybe didn’t know how to do it in square, this tutorial is for you!
The moss stitch in a square is relatively easy to do and is great for blanket patterns.
If you are wanting to know how to just crochet a regular, straight moss stitch, I have that tutorial HERE
The yarn I used
The yarn that I’m using in the above picture is Hobby Lobby’s ‘Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek’ in green and coral (they are 2 separate skeins) This is actually the same brand of yarn that I used for my Moss Stitch Triangle Scarf last year.
I really like this type of yarn, it works up really nicely and defines the stitches very well.
The specific pattern that I’m working on now with the moss stitch in a square, will hopefully be released soon. I was hoping for this week, but things have gone crazy, so let’s just say it will be soon!
Be sure to PIN this tutorial to save it for later
