There's no arguing that the knit moss panels are eye-catching!
This knitting stitch is made up of vertical moss diamonds embedded on a purl bakcground with rib panelling on the sides.
The moss panel stitch is a reversible pattern in that the front and back of the stitch can both be used. It creates two totally different looks, but equally beautiful.
There is no special technique necessary to knit the moss panels. It is made up of a combination of knit and purl stitches only.
