I have updated 3 of my most popular stitch posts and added side picture links on the right if you scroll down to the picture you want,
so you can find them easily in the future

MOSS STITCH BORDER...A requested tutorial

A simple but effective stitch for great colourful borders

use a different colour for every round

US Terms in black with UK Terms in brackets in red
Tweed, stripes and spots

This stitch can be done in a tweed look..different colour every round.
 As a stripe in two colours used alternately used.
Or used to make spots by using the spot colour every third row in a back ground of one colour

Basic Moss Stitch
Round 1: start in a corner, sc, [dc], ch3, sc [dc], in the corner sp, miss a st, sc [dc], in the next st, ch 1, miss a st, repeat to end of row, repeat corner sc [dc],  ch3, sc [dc], continue to repeat side and corner stitches, to end sl st to complete cut off and weave in ends

Round 2: change colour and repeat round 1

Hope these updates and links will be helpful
