Knit with Aabhar – Moss Slip Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description

The Moss Slip Stitch knitting pattern is a variation of the classic moss stitch, where every other stitch is a slipped stitch. The knitted fabric is dense, especially when working with two colors. Choosing a bigger needle size than recommended to create a slightly softer fabric will be a good idea.

It is not a fully reversible knitting pattern but looks decent from the wrong side. Moss Slip Stitch is a perfect pattern for knitting blankets, scarves, or cowls, as it does not curl in any way.
