The even moss stitch is such a popular stitch and I am happy to bring this tutorial to you today.
When learning the even moss stitch combination, you just need to know how to crochet the half double crochet stitch and the slip stitch.
I love the versatility of this stitch combination and the mindless way to keep moving through a project! It is fun to work the same basic stitches like the slip stitch and half double crochet stitch, but in a new way and combination.
That is one of the things I find so fascinating about crochet…there just seems to be an endless amount of stitches and I feel like I could learn a new one every day and still never get to them all!
These stitches are used in a combination that creates a really nice looking stitch that has definite columns in the repeating pattern.
You can use this stitch in a lot of different ways to liven up a project. It looks really good in big sections.
So, let’s jump right in and learn the even moss stitch.

Even Moss Stitch Written Instructions:
Work in multiples of 2
Even Moss stitch – 1 sl st, 1 hdc – repeat across row
Row 1: Skip the first ch and work a sl st in the 2nd ch from hook. Then work *1 hdc in next ch, sl st in next ch; repeat from * to end, turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, *sl st in next st (hdc), 1 hdc in next st (sl st); repeat from * to end of row, work the last sl st in the turning ch, turn.
Row 3: Repeat Row 2.
- Keep checking your stitch count to make sure that everything is lining up correctly.
- Even though you have some hdc in each row, just ch 1 at the start of rows to maintain those nice columns.
