Double moss stitch tutorial…..

Today’s square for my throw I’m currently working patiently!!

Abbreviations 

Cm = centimetres

K = knit

P = purl

St(s) = stitch(es)

Rep = repeat

RS = right side

Tension

19 stitches and 24 rows over 10cm square pattern on 4mm needles

It’s important to work on the stated tension to achieve succress.

Pattern:
Cast on 29 sts with 4mm needles  ~ this is what is required for my square, which when finished will approximately 15cm x 15cm. 

1st Row : (RS) k1, *p1, k1 rep from *to end

2nd Row: p1, *k1, p1, rep from *to  end

3rd Row: p1, *k1, p1, rep from *to end

4th Row: k1, *p1, k1 rep from *to end

Rep these 4 rows 8 times more or until work measures 15cm.

Cast off knitwise working into the back of each st.

Making up

Place the square (or however big you piece of work is) on a flat padded surface and ease out to correct dimensions, pinning around edges as necessary.

Cover with a clean, lightly dampened cloth and leave until square and cloth are dry.

Store the square (or your piece of work) until your ready to sew it together if you decide to make a throw, if not, your project will be finished!!

Follow me to receive new stitches, new squares, for your throw.

I’m using DK wool, and it’s great to use up your odd balls of wool up!!
