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.

How To Knit Double Moss Stitch

You can knit double moss stitch either on odd or even stitches.

To work the stitch on an odd number of stitches, knit as follows:

Row 1 – K1, *p1, k1; repeat from * to end

Row 2 – P1, *k1, p1; repeat from * to end

Row 3 – as row 2

Row 4 – As row 1

To work double moss stitch on an even number of stitches, work as follows:

Row 1 – *K1, p1; repeat from * to end

Row 2 – As row 1

Row 3 – *P1, k1; repeat from * to end

Row 4 – As row 3
