You might remember my first foray into multi-coloured moss stitch here, and wonder what that led to next. Well like all the best projects that one spawned another idea even before I had finished it. So today I present to you my first three coloured moss stitch:
Hugely simpler to make than the two coloured version, as it involves no sewing in of ends.
I really like the tweed effect too.
Made in Scheepjeswol XL Moonstone, Deep amethyst, and Lilac quartz on a 6mm hook.
I like this even better than the 2-color version. It does have a nice tweedy look. (And the added bonus of no ends to weave in.)
You should definitely try it – I don’t think you will be disappointed!
Do you think it would work for an afghan, or would it be too heavy?
I think it would be brilliant for an afghan, but I suggest you go 2 sizes up for hook size. My yarn says use a 5mm hook on the label, and I have used a 6mm hook for the cushion, but it is still a pretty firm fabric.
