Crochet C2C Moss Stitch Tutorial (with video)

Last Updated on May 19, 2024

I love working different crochet stitches from corner to corner. The C2C Moss stitch is one of my very favorite stitches, and my go-to stitch when I’m looking for a simple make. That’s why I decided to make this detailed photo tutorial and video tutorial.

In this tutorial, we will make a washcloth, but you can use it to make a blanket.

I’m sure you will enjoy working this stitch even if you are a beginner or an experienced crocheter. The C2C Moss stitch is a fun and easy stitch, which you can work mindlessly.

The crochet Moss stitch is super easy, it consists of alternating single crochet and chains, while the single crochet is worked into the chain space.

You will see how easy it is to work the C2C Moss stitch but following the tutorial I made: You start from one corner, increasing every row until you reach the desired length of your square, and then start decreasing until you reach the other corner.

How to Use This Tutorial to Make a C2C Moss Stitch Blanket

Making a blanket using the corner to corner Moss stitch is very simple.
By simply following the tutorial I made, after you start the increase, repeat the same increase row, until reaching the desired width of your blanket, then start decreasing.

The basic pattern creates a square-shaped blanket. You can also work the C2C Moss stitch as a rectangle, you can find the rectangle version in the Premium PDF pattern on Ravelry or Etsy.
