Double Moss Stitch

Knit with Aabhar – Double Moss Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description

Double Moss Stitch Pattern is one of the simplest knitting patterns you can make if you know the basic knit and purl stitches. The pattern involves a repeat of four simple rows. Another variation of the Double Moss Stitch, known as Checkerboard Stitch, is worked in two-row stitch pattern repeats.

If you are a beginner at knitting patterns and want to explore something new, then the double moss stitch is one of the patterns you can easily try.

It creates a textured fabric you can use for edging, just like ribbing patterns, as it doesn’t curl. You can also try to mix it up with the basic stockinette stitches to create a panel of Double Moss Stitches in any of your projects. Being a reversible knitting pattern, it is also perfect for making scarves and blankets.
