KNITTING PATTERN for the Irish Moss Stitch

Cast On in Multiples of 2

Row 1: * K1, P1 *
Row 2: * K1, P1 *
Row 3: * P1, K1 *
Row 4: * P1, K1 *

This is such a classic, quick, and beautiful knit stitch.

We knit it in four rows and cast on in multiples of two. And then we repeat the same series of four rows. So, when you are done with row four, begin again on row one!

Knit up a little luck of the Irish
