The crochet Moss Stitch, also known as the Granite Stitch, is a super easy and fun stitch technique that produces a gorgeous texture. Since it’s made up solely of Single Crochet Stitches and Chains, it’s an easy pattern for any beginner to master, but also fun for the more experienced crocheter.
Check out the Crochet Moss Stitch Video Tutorial below, or reference the written instructions at the bottom of this post.
