Includes 2 stitch patterns:

  1. American Moss Crochet Stitch
  2. American Double Moss Crochet Stitch

Named after a classic knitting stitch known as either American Moss or Irish Moss, American Moss CROCHET is different from a traditional crochet moss stitch. It is a 1-row repeat and creates a beautiful reversible fabric (the same on both sides). There are also no holes, making it plush and warm, plus it also has incredible weight, softness and drape. The American Double Moss Stitch is worked in a similar way to the American Moss Stitch, except the effect is doubled, with sets of 2 stitches worked in the same way, rather than a single stitch.
