How to Crochet the Moss Stitch and a Free, Easy, Washcloth Pattern

Pin It!

The are so many fun crochet stitches out there to try. I am always learning new ones! The stitch that I want to highlight today is called the moss stitch. Have you tried it? It is super easy and very beginner friendly! One of my favorite ways to practice new stitches it to create wash cloths with them. Cotton washcloths are very versatile and people love them as baby shower gifts, wedding gifts or anytime gifts. They are fun to give with a soap or body wash!

For this project you will need just a few things:

Yarn: I use cotton for washcloths. They can clean up items and can be washed. The cotton ones last for quite awhile! Here are some yarn recommendations:

Crochet Hook: G, Scissors, Yarn Needle

Abbreviations Used

Ch: Chain

sc: single crochet

Washcloth and Stitch Pattern

Start the project by chaining an even number of stitches. I used 22 for this washcloth pattern.

Row 1: Sc in second chain from hook, chain one, skip one chain.

Continue to sc, ch 1, skip on ch across. At the end you will have 11 sc and 10 skipped spaces (holes). Ch 1 turn.

Row 2: Sc in first “hole”, ch 1, sc in next “hole”, ch 1, do this across. Ch 1, turn.

Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you have the length you desire. I did 24 rows.

At the end of your last row, begin to sc in each sc around the whole wash cloth. Put 3 sc in each corner. When you get all the way around, join and end. Weave in all tails.

So, what do you think? Will yo try this project? Have you done the moss stitch with any other projects? I would love to hear!

Happy Crocheting!
