Blanket Moss Stitch

Sample knit with Peaches & Creme on US Size 6 needles

I can just see a bathroom rug with lots of fringe knit with this stitch!  

Cast on any multiple of 2+1

Row 1: (RS) Knit into the front and back of each stitch
Row 2: K2tog * P2tog, K2tog*
Row 3: Knit into the front and back of each stitch
Row 4: P2tog *K2tog, P2tog*

Repeat these four rows for the pattern.

And here is the video.  Happy Knitting, and Enjoy!

HI, I absolutely love this stitch and want to create a cushion cover from it. I would really appreciate it if you could tell me how I would go about making a button hole within this pattern. Thanks.

For a smaller button you could just do a single or double yarn over at the point you plan to have the button. For a larger button typically you bind off a few stitches, then you'd need to cast the same number back in. I believe tech knitter has good buttonhole instructions on her blog. also has a buttonhole video and possibly Lucy Neatby has a video. Hope that helps.

Thanks for your help. The bit that confuses me is that you are increasing stitches every other row. How do I take this into account when knitting the second row of the buttonhole? I can do them on simple patterns but this is a bit more confusing. Any guidance would be gratefully received!
