Irish Moss Stitch Knitting Pattern

This Irish Moss Stitch Pattern is such a pretty vintage design! This 4-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is a variation of the Seed Stitch and has a really great texture… it’s nice and squishy, too! American Moss is another term used for this pattern. This knitting pattern is reversible and an easy level project, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series.

CLOSER LOOK at the Irish Moss Stitch Pattern

The Irish Moss Stitch is a reversible pattern, meaning that both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides, are identical. This makes a great choice for items like scarves and blankets since both sides are similar.

Irish Moss Knit Stitch Pattern is Reversible with both sides identical.


KNITTING MATERIALS

Feel free to use any size yarn and needles for your creative project. My Garter Stitch sample was created with size 7 US knitting needles and worsted weight yarn, along with a Tapestry Needle and Scissors
