I’m so excited to be able to bring you the new stitch of the week! I hope you are all excited to learn the Moss Stitch. It’s one of my favorites. It is similar to a crunch stitch and is made with a series of half double crochets and slip stitches. Happy Crocheting!

Moss Stitch Afghan Square
- 1 skein of worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton* for this example.
- Size I, 5.5mm* Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle, for weaving ends
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
hdc – half double crochet
sk – skip
tch – turning chain
14 stitches = 4″ & 8 rows = 4″
Chain any multiple of 2
To make an 8″ x 8″ square,
Row 1: Sk first ch from hook, sl st in the next ch. *1 hdc in the next ch, sl st in the next ch.** Repeat from * to ** until the end of the row. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: *Sl st into the next hdc. 1 hdc into the next sl st.** Repeat from * to ** until the end of the row, working the last st into the tch. Ch 1, turn.
Row 3-18: Repeat Row 2.
The finished square measures approximately 8″ x 8″ without an edging. If you add an edging, it will be slightly larger.
