Studio Knit subscriber Renee recently asked about the difference between the Seed Stitch and the Moss Stitch. So, the British Moss Stitch is the same as the Seed Stitch, but the American Moss Stitch is a bit different. It knits up and lays beautifully flat, making this a great stitch for a scarf or blanket.

We begin Casting on an ODD number of stitches, so I have 17 stitches on my needle. The American Moss STITCH pattern is knit in a repeated series of four rows.

Row 2: * P1, K1 * P1
Row 3: * P1, K1 * P1
Row 4: * K1, P1 * K1
Repeat these four rows to the length you desire!
