Crochet Moss Stitch Tutorial

Crochet Stitch Series

I’m back this week with a nice and easy, basic stitch tutorial. The crochet moss stitch is beginner friendly and you can make countless projects with it.

I’m including written instructions and a step by step video tutorial, as usual. I have a project that I used the crochet moss stitch for you to check out, so you can see the finished stitch product. Check out the Spring Pull Over here to see that moss stitch glory.

I used a #4 medium weight Sheepjes Stone Washed XL and a 5 mm crochet hook on this one.

If you’re not into the moss stitch this week, or just want a bigger challenge, check out this Even Moss Stitch sweater project. Similar to the moss stitch, but different. It’s a winter project, but that just means you have plenty of time to get it perfect.

Hope you all enjoy. See below for the written instructions and follow along video. Happy crocheting!

NOTES:

  • This moss stitch is in a multiples of 2 ch or ch an even numbers
