The Even Moss Crochet Stitch creates such a fabulous texture. It's one that is so unique to the crochet craft.
If you want a stitch that is versatile this is it. It's got a great texture for a washcloth, but a light drape so it can be used for garments as well. It's also reversible which is a plus!
And this texture is an easy repeat, you combine only two stitches and alternate between them to create the even moss stitch pattern.

There is no need to chain 1 at the beginning of each row. Without the beginning chain 1, you will have straighter edges. Use a stitch marker to keep track of the first stitch in the row.
