Classic and Striped Moss stitches: Reversible and they don’t curl (for knitting blankets and scarves)
In this tutorial, you’ll learn two different stitches: The classic Moss stitch, and, by adding a couple of rows, the striped Moss stitch; a more horizontal pattern design.
I designed this new striped moss version myself, specifically for knitting scarves and blankets, because it’s reversible (practically identical on both sides), and it doesn’t curl. No extra edges are necessary!
This striped moss stitch has a great texture to it, it’s pretty easy to knit (and to memorize), ideal for beginners: If you can knit and purl, you can knit this new stitch without a doubt.
CO: Cast on
BO: Bind off
This swatch was knitted using one of my favorite bamboo needles:

CO an even number of st (for the video demonstration I cast on 8 st).
1º and 2º rows: *k1, p1*. Repeat from * to *, to the end.
3º and 4º rows: *p1, k1*. Repeat from * to *, to the end.
These four rows form the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached. When finished, BO in pattern after a row 3.

After knitting the four rows of the classic Moss stitch, work as follows:
5º row: K
6º row: P
7º and 8º rows: Such as rows 1º and 2º
9º and 10º rows: Such as rows 3º and 4º
11º row: P
12º row: K
These 12 rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached. When finished, BO in pattern after a row 3.
This is the other side of the work (100% cotton yarn):
