I have been seeing lots of patterns lately using Moss Stitch, particularly as a textured stitch for a cowl. Which is funny to me, because a Moss Stitch cowl has been my traveling project all fall (and is still a long way from being done, actually).
This Moss Stitch Infinity Scarf from Portia at Makery is lovely. Worked in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a luscious plum color (I actually have a shawl worked in this very yarn and I love it) it’s the perfect mindless knitting project.
It’s not even really a pattern; just cast on an odd number of stitches, work the one-row repeat of Moss Stitch, bind off when you want and sew the edges together. You can add a twist before you sew the ends together if you like to make a mobius-like project, too.
Do you like cowls, or are you more of a “regular” scarf person? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
