Irish Moss Stitch Knitting Pattern

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.
