Even Moss Stitch

Updated April 14, 2022
Pin it now, make later!

The Even Moss Stitch might possibly be my NEW favourite stitch. I love a dense stitch these days and this one has the added benefit of being reversible making it great for blankets and scarves. In my sample, I have used Paintbox Simply Aran which is an acrylic yarn, however, I think this stitch would be great in a cotton yarn to make something like a pot holder or scrubbie!

Project Ideas

Here’s a few of my favourites project I found on Pinterest using the Even Moss stitch to give you some inspiration of what you could do with it! I would suggest you try out a sample piece first and then get stuck in to a project.

    I tried to make a scarf using C2C stitch but could not make sense of the written directions or the left-handed video included. Then I found Bell Coca’s video of the stitch and I was finally able to make it work. Her explanations and demonstrations are always helpful and I’ve learned a lot from them.
