Swatch Saturday: Moss Stitch

IMG_3585

Moss stitch is similar to seed stitch, both functionally and how it is worked.  It can be used as a “plain” panel between cables.  Like seed stitch, it can be used to emboss designs on a field of stockinette.  It can be used as an all-over pattern for such things as berets and jackets. It can get a bit tedious to work, but the results are worth it. Since it has an equal number of knits and purls in each row it tends to lie flat.
