#Moss aka #Granite aka #Linen #Stitch - Crochet Tutorial - by Nicki's Homemade Crafts #crochet #tutorial

I was recently asked to make a tutorial on how to crochet the Moss Stitch which is also known as the Granite or Linen Stitch. As I really enjoy making crochet tutorials, I jumped right onto making it.

This stitch is actually very easy to crochet. This stitch become very popular and well known once color pooling became a trend. If you have not tried color pooling, you should check out my review on a book that is all about Color Pooling.

Color Pooling aka Yarn Pooling is when the yarn is a variegated yarn and is crocheted using the moss stitch to create beautiful patterns just using the colors of the yarn.

I decided the break up the moss stitch tutorial into 2 parts. One part explain and shows how to do the stitch flat and the other part shows how to do it in a round. Both have separate video tutorials to lead you thru the steps on how to start and continue with the moss stitch.

Instructions:

How to do the moss stitch flat

1. First make a chain of a ODD number. Then you skip the first 2 chains and make a single crochet into the 3rd chain from the hook. I am pointing my finger at it here.

4. By the end of the round, either continue the rounds without slip stitch (continues rounds, be sure to use a stitch marker) or use a slip stitch like me. I slip stitched into the chain space created in the beginning of the round.

5. Here you can see the chain space more clearly. Be aware that when the last stitch is only 1 sc, the next stitch shown (the first stitch of the round is the chain space). That would be different for the continues rounds, as you still need to make the chain of 1.
