How to Knit the AMERICAN MOSS Stitch
Easy to Understand Step-by-Step Knitting Pattern Instructions
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.
