CLOSER LOOK at the Double Moss Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Double Moss Knit Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this pretty, simple pattern.

This is is a reversible pattern, meaning that both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides, are identical. Since this pattern easily lays flat, I think it’s a great knit stitch pattern to knit up a pillow, blanket, hat, or scarf.
