Crochet with the Moss Stitch when Working with Dark Yarn
This crochet cowl uses the moss stitch, which is an incredibly simple stitch and perfect for even beginners! I very intentionally used my 'Cream/Black' colorway for this project because with the moss stitch you mostly work into ch spaces instead of into actual stitches. MUCH easier to see when working with dark colored yarns.
