How to do the Moss Stitch: The moss stitch is really simple, it's a combination of slip stitch and hdc. You make 1 slip stitch in a st of the previous Rnd, then 1 hdc in the next st. When you are going back across on the next Rnd, you make your ss in the hdc of previous Rnd and your hdc in the ss of the previous Rnd. My photos doesn't really show how neat the moss stitch looks. Here is a video showing the moss stitch being worked and you get can a better view of how it looks. http://youtu.be/tR2GfDB80tE

How to ss2tog: insert hook into st, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert hook into next st, yarn over and pull up a loop and pull through all 3 loops on the hook.

How to hdc2tog: yarn over hook and insert into st, pull up a loop, yarn over hook and insert into next st, pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through all 5 loops on hook.
