Moss Stitch / Seed Stitch

James McIntosh
August 26, 2019

Moss Stitch - also known as Seed Stitch

Moss Stitch is worked on a multiple of 2 rows. And the pattern is reversible - the same on both sides.

The end stitch at either end on all rows is a knit stitch.

Multiples of stitches: 2 stitches, plus one extra knit stitch and a knit stitch at each end.

Note, this is 2 stitches (not 3 stitches) plus one extra knit stitch and 2 knit edge stitches.
