Even Moss Stitch is very versatile. You can use on its own, making the whole project like a baby blanket. Or using it as an accent for a couple of rows in other projects. It looks great with any type of yarn. I tried it using acrylic yarn for a baby blanket and it’s really soft and squishy. I also tried it for a hand towel using cotton yarn and it’s also great.

I find that a normal, single-coloured yarn brings out the texture of this stitch the best! But it all depends on the design and what you would like to create. Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions about this stitch!
