This crochet moss stitch is a great fool-proof straight-edge stitch!
I’m excited to share this moss stitch, though I do know probably many, crocheters know this stitch already! But, what I like about it is the ease of turning at the end of each row. No finding the exact SC to stitch into. The last stitch is in between the CH-2 turning chain and last sc. I’m jumping ahead I know, but you’ll see when you try this pattern.
Chain any even number.
Row 1: SC in the 4th chain from hook, *CH 1, SK next CH, SC in next CH, repeat from * to the end of the row. (The last stitch should be a SC in the last CH)
Row 2: CH 2, turn, SC in CH 1 space from previous row, *CH 1, SK 1 SC, SC in next CH 1 SP, repeat from * to the very end, the last SC should be worked into the space between the CH 2 turning chain and SC from the previous row.
Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you reach your desired length.
That’s it! Enjoy having straight edges on each side of your scarves and blankets! And once you’ve mastered this moss stitch, check out these moss stitch patterns:
