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. What will you create with your new Irish Moss Stitch?
CLOSER LOOK at the Irish Moss Stitch Pattern
Let’s take a close look at our Irish Moss Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this pretty, simple pattern. This is a reversible pattern, meaning that both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides, are identical.
