Double Moss Knit Stitch Pattern by Studio Knit with Free Pattern and Video Tutorial

This Double Moss Stitch Pattern is a simple pattern that adds great texture. A variation on the Seed and Irish Moss stitches, this easy knit stitch pattern is achieved with a 4-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern of knit and purl stitches. This stitch pattern is also called the Double Seed, Double Irish Moss, Two Stitch Check, and Box Stitch. Since this is a reversible pattern that easily lays flat, I think it’s a great knit stitch pattern to knit up a pillow, blanket, hat, or scarf.
