I’ve used the granite stitch (aka moss stitch, seed stitch, etc.) in several projects, so I decided that it might make sense to share a picture tutorial with you on how to do it! It’s a super easy stitch and it creates a beautiful texture that almost looks woven or knit. If you know how to single crochet and make a chain stitch, you are ready to rock and roll with this moss stitch. The crocheted moss/granite stitch can be used for anything from blankets, to scarves to even dish cloths.

Repeat row 3 for as long as you’d like!
