Enjoyed your video but I am confused now. I've only been knitting for a few years now and I have been working on a dishtowel that uses a stitch exactly like this but is called a "double moss" ( I looked it up) stitch.Is this one of those stitches that have multiple names? It becomes very confusing when I trying to learn new stitches. The pattern I'm working on is called, "Chili Pepper Red Kitchen Towel" a freebie but great pattern

I have not knitted in so long but every time I see these beautiful things made by knitting I want to get started again. This is such a pretty stitch to use on so many things a bodice for a little girls,a blanket,pot holder and the list can go on.This is such a well done video. You can understand her so clear and see what she is doing with her hands perfectly. I want to start back knitting soon and this video will make it a whole lot easier. Anyone wanting to start knitting again? This is a must see.
