Week 30 of The 50 Stitches crochet along features the Moss stitch. This stitch is also known as the Linen stitch and the Granite stitch. It creates an interlocking pattern that is quick and easy to work up making it a great crochet stitch for beginners.
If you’d like to know how to make the Moss stitch for any size project, you can find out how here
You can find the links for all the squares in the crochet along here. The free pattern is below, but if you’d like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for £5 from Ravelry
This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below.
Single crochet (sc) = Double crochet
For this square you will need a 4.5mm hook
Start by making a foundation chain of 32
Row 1. In 4th chain from your hook make a sc. *chain 1, skip a stitch then sc in the next stitch* repeat between *and* – 30 stitches
Row 2. Chain 3 and sc in the first chain space.
*chain 1 and sc in the next chain space* repeat between *and* with the last stitch being a sc made in the turning chain of the row below
Row 3 – 22. Repeat row 2.
Use a 3.5 mm hook for the border
Make a single in each stitch across the top and bottom
For the sides, make 2 sc in the side of rows 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19 and 22. Make 1 sc in the side of all other rows.
You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)
You have now finished your square and join and you can tie off and weave in the ends
You can now add the interlocking border, joining this weeks square to last weeks as you join. You can see how to do this here
