I realized that the title could confuse some people because moss stitch triangles can also refer to shawl-like knits. What I am sharing with you, is how to knit a particular knitting stitch.
As long as I can remember, my Mom used to knit jerseys for all my brothers and other boys, using this stitch, sometimes she used the stocking stitch triangles.
To me, it is a masculine stitch, but it's not necessary to restrict it to just jerseys. Likewise, it could add dimension to throws, blankets and even scarves.
