The moss stitch is the cousin of the seed stitch, it's a little bit bigger. So instead of doing a knit 1, purl 1, you're going to go across, and do a knit 2, purl 2, and that's going to give you a bigger stitch. And sometimes you can do the knit 2, purl 2 for two rows, and then change it up to get a bigger block. So if we did this across the knit 2, purl 2, and it's a space aways from the seed stitch we did before, and then you go back, and this time I'm going to do the knits over the purls like I did before, but it's just going to be a little bit bigger. So I'm going to do the reverse of what I did on the other side, and I'm knitting over my purls, and purling over my knits, but I've got 2 by 2, instead of 1 by 1. And if you kept elongating how many wide your stitches are, eventually it would kind of become like a basket weave, in a sense. So there, if you had that, it becomes bigger. If this is your moss stitch, and down here is your seed stitch, you've got the 1 stitch by 1 stitch, verses the 2 by 2, which becomes the moss stitch.
