How to Crochet the Moss Stitch

Learning how to crochet moss stitch is a very simple. This is a great advanced beginner stitch pattern to master once you’ve learned the foundation chain, the Single Crochet stitch and the Slip Stitch, . In fact, it’s one of the most popular crochet stitches.

The crochet moss stitch is also called the granite stitch or linen stitch. It combines single crochet with chain stitches worked repeatedly across the row. You simply create chain spaces across the row, working single crochet into the chain stitches from the row below.  (*CH 1, SK 1 CH, SC in the next CH* repeat to the end of the row.)

You get a beautifully textured design when you add row upon row in this stitch. It looks a lot more detailed and complicated than it actually is to crochet, which allows you to make projects that you’ll really be proud of, even if you are a beginner to the craft.

Since this is such a simple crochet stitch pattern, you can use it to make almost anything. As a beginner, you might not want to worry about how to increase and decrease in this stitch pattern, though. Therefore, many of the crochet moss stitch patterns that you will find are square or rectangular projects. Washcloths, dishcloths, scarves, and blankets all look great in crochet moss stitch. That said, as you gain experience with the stitch, you’ll be able to do more shaping so that you can make other projects as well.
