What is moss stitch crochet?
Moss stitch crochet is a basic crochet stitch that creates a textured, reversible fabric. It is worked by alternating single crochet and slip stitch in each row. The name “moss stitch” comes from the fact that the fabric resembles moss or lawn.
This stitch is often used for afghans, baby blankets, and other projects where a soft, textured fabric is desired. It can be worked in any size yarn and with any size crochet hook.

To make this dishcloth, you’ll need a worsted weight yarn and a size H (5 mm) crochet hook. You can use any colour yarn you like, but I used white so that it would be easy to see the stitches.
