I just love the linen stitch!! In this post I will teach you how to crochet the linen stitch, AKA the moss stitch. I have a video to show the stitch, written instructions, and a chart and pattern for a practice piece as seen in the pictures. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Stitchopedia.
This video will show you how to crochet the linen stitch.
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
st(s) ~ stitch(es)
Row 1: Make an odd number of chains, sc in second ch from hook, sc in next ch, * ch 1, skip 1, sc in next ch, repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2: Sc in first 2 sc, * ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space, repeat from * until 2 sts remain, ch 1, sc in last st.
Repeat row 2 as many times as needed.
NOTE: There is not turning chain to start row 2. It is not necessary with sc, however, if you want one, you can make a ch at the start of row 2, and then continue with row 2 as written.
For this practice piece, you will use 2 colors to help show the various looks that can be created with different size stripes in linen stitch.
For row 1, ch 21, and continue with the linen st as described above. Make the rows in the following colors:
Rows 1~4: Color A
Row 5: Color B
Rows 6~8: Color A
Rows 9~10: Color B
Rows 11~12: Color A
Rows 13~15: Color B
Row 16: Color A
Rows 17~20: Color B
And here is a chart as well:
