To make a project using this stitch, all you have to do is repeat just one row! Imagine having to memorize only one row, repeating it over, and achieving a gorgeous texture in no time. In fact, it looks more complicated than it actually is.

Because of the chain spaces, it’s not as dense as rows worked in single crochets only. Thus, it creates a flat and flowy fabric you can use in lots of projects. 

There are lots of project ideas you can make using this stitch, but first bring out your yarn and hook. It’s time to learn how to make the Moss Crochet Stitch!
