Crochet Linen (Moss/Granite) Stitch Tutorial

Today's tutorial is on the Crochet Linen Stitch. It's also known as the Granite or Moss Stitch. This stitch is super simple to crochet with just chain stitches & single crochet stitches & so it's great for beginners! I will provide instructions on working this stitch in rows.

I have a crochet beanie pattern available in this stitch. The Tyler Slouch Beanie can be worked with any weight yarn with the recommended hook size. The pattern is available in all shops.
