Double Moss Stitch is a wonderful and extremely versatile knitting stitch.
It is also an extremely easy knitting stitch – just as easy as regular moss stitch but it looks so much more textured and interesting (in our opinion).
You can see in this photo that the double moss stitch looks terrific knit on top on a piece of simple 1 x 1 rib stitch. The yarn in this photo is self striping, but the stitch would work equally well with plain yarn.
