Suggested Supplies

Pair the crochet moss stitch with just about any yarn in your stash from lightweight to super bulky. Choose a smooth yarn for stitch definition that’ll allow the pattern to really be the focus, or pair it with a slightly textured yarn for a little more visual interest and texture.
