I returned to Reversible Knitting Stitches by Moira and Anna Ravenscroft this week and selected the Embossed Moss Stitch Rib pattern. I really enjoyed knitting this swatch. It's a simple 12 stitch repeat and only 2 rows so it's easy to memorize. I cast on 30 stitches for this piece and knit about 2 1/2 inches in a short period of time.
This is the third stitch pattern from this book. I knit the Carmarthen Ridge Stitch and Double Twill patterns and will be using both of those stitch patterns in upcoming designs.
This stitch is ideal for a scarf or cowl. I have 400 yards of Berroco Peruvia Quick Wool that will knit up beautifully using this pattern.
