Even Moss Bath Mat
My favourite crochet stitch of all time is the Even Moss stitch. It goes by many other names, but I stick with this one. Half trebles are my love already, but mix it in with a sneaky slip stitch and you get a fantastic textured item.
Chuck some cord or t-shirt yarn at that texture and you’ve got yourself a scrummy bathmat! I chuck mine in the wash regulary on a cold wash with no issues - I’ve even given them a tentative whirl in the tumble dryer with no disasters!
Even moss is a very simple stitch:
Chain an odd number of stitches to your desired width
Row 1 Half-treble into the 2nd chain from the hook, half-treble into all remaining chs
Row 2 Chain 2, skip first stitch, slip stitch into next stitch, *half-treble into next stitch, slip stitch into next stitch*, repeat across from * to *
Repeat Row 2 until you reach your desired height.
Final row Chain 2, skip first stitch, half treble into all remaining stitches.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
For the mat pictured, I used a 150m of 5mm Bobbiny cord in Rainbow Dust and Coral, a 10mm hook and chained 35 for my starting chain. My finished mat measures 55x45cm
