How to Crochet the Even Moss Stitch – Written Tutorial

The even moss stitch is a very easy stitch to learn as you will only need to know two basic stitches. When crocheting this stitch you will alternate between slip stitching in one stitch and half double crocheting in the next stitch. And that’s it…minimum effort for maximum results! 🙂

 

FCH: Chain desired length making sure you have an even number of chains

 

R1:

– SS into the back bump of 2nd CH from the hook (Pic 1) = insert your hook into the back bump, yarn over and pull your hook through the back bump and then through the loop on the hook

– HDC into the back bump of the next chain (Pic 2) = yarn over first, then insert your hook into the back bump of the next chain, yarn over and pull your hook through the back bump – you will have 3 loops left on the hook, yarn over and pull through the 3 loops on the hook

– continue to crochet into the back bump of each chain taking turns between SS and HDC (Pic 3)

– your last stitch in the row should always be SS

– CH1 and TO

note: count your sitches at the end of the row every now and then to make sure you have the correct count

R2:

– SS into 2nd CH from the hook (Pic 4)

– HDC into next ST (Pic 5)

– continue to crochet across the row taking turns between SS and HDC (Pic 6)

– remember your last stitch should always be SS

– CH1 and TO

note: don’t worry if your work is a bit twisted at this stage, it will flatten out as you crochet along

R3 onwards:

– repeat R2 until you have achieved the desired size of your project

 

Last row:

– SS into 2nd CH from the hook

– HDC into next ST

– continue to crochet across the row taking turns between SS and HDC

– Do not CH1, FO and weave the yarn tail in

 

How to Crochet the Even Moss Stitch – Colour Changes

– when working on the last SS at the end of a row: insert your hook into the last stitch; then yarn over with new colour and complete the SS (Pic 7)

– then CH1 using new colour (Pic 8) and TO

– continue to crochet as per row R2

How to Crochet the Even Moss Stitch – How to Count Rows

– you can either count the loop rows or the worked rows – this tutorial is written using worked rows

– worked row = every single row you will crochet

– loop row = two worked rows; one row will consist of the loops and the other row will be squeezed in between the loop rows
