How to Knit Moss Stitch

In this video tutorial, Heidi Gustad teaches you how to knit the moss stitch. The moss stitch is a great stitch for beginners looking to add some interesting texture to their work. It's made by alternating knits and purls every stitch and changing their location after two rows. This stitch produces an almost shifted ribbing or tiny basketweave patterned fabric. Since the stitch is reversible, cowls, scarves, and baby blankets are a few types of projects that look great with this type of textured motif.

I love the moss stitch, but I had a bit of trouble with counting and keeping my stitches straight when I was learning it, so this would've been so helpful then. But the moss stitch is one of my favorite stitches for scarves, because it's super easy, but more visually interesting than garter stitch by far!
