Named after a classic knitting stitch known as either American Moss or Irish Moss, this stitch is different from a traditional crochet moss stitch. Worked in rounds, this stitch creates a strikingly beautiful, knit-look afghan square. There are also no holes, making it plush and warm, but it also has incredible weight, softness and drape. Squares are sewn together with whip stitch using a yarn needle.
