[Original Video Transcript](#transcript)
Hi and welcome to Knit With Hannah! I’m Hannah, and I’m here to help you learn to knit the easy way. Today, we’re going to learn how to knit the double moss stitch. You may already be familiar with the seed stitch, but the double moss stitch adds a unique texture to your knitting. Let me show you a sample of how it looks when finished. (video demonstration)
To start, cast on an even number of stitches. In this case, I have cast on 20 stitches. The key to knitting the double moss stitch is alternating between knit and purl stitches. However, when transitioning from a knit stitch to a purl stitch, make sure to move the yarn from the back to the front before creating the purl stitch. This will avoid any confusion and keep your stitches neat. (detailed instructions)
Once you complete a row of knit and purl stitches, turn your work and start the next row with a purl stitch. Continue alternating between knit and purl stitches, while following the same pattern as the previous row. (detailed instructions)
The resulting fabric is similar to ribbing, with knit stitches sitting on top of each other and purl stitches sitting on top of each other. This texture adds a touch of uniqueness to your knitting projects. You can use the double moss stitch for a variety of projects, such as scarves or hats. (tips and project ideas)
I hope you enjoyed learning the double moss stitch! Let me know in the comments if you have any questions or if you plan to use this stitch in a project. Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel and join our community of knitters. Happy knitting!
