This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the double moss stitch. This pattern is similar to the moss and seed stitch in that it alternates between k1 and p1 on different rows. However in this pattern you repeat the row twice before switching, giving your work a different texture that is great for wash cloths, scarves, and hats.
