The Moroccan Tile stitch is one of those stitches that is sure to stand out in a project!
The stitch is versatile and may be used in a variety of projects. Personally I have seen it used in blankets and throw cushions and I look forward to bringing you another design that incorporates this stitch very soon! The stitch has a similar feel and look to the Crochet Nesting V Stitch however it is a little easier to work!

The stitch pattern is made up of crochet v stitches, sometimes worked in the chain one space and sometimes worked in the space between the v stitches two rows below. The design is similar on both sides and creates a near solid fabric. The most tricky part of the pattern is hiding the yarn that is carried up the side. I would recommend adding an edging to a design worked in the Moroccan Tile stitch where there is a long straight edge.
Materials for this Tutorial:
For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in two colours. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm birchwood crochet hook by Rowan Yarns. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial. You may work the stitch in one colour or many. I will be working the design in two colours: A and B.
To begin, with colour A, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need a multiple of three stitches plus two stitches for your foundation chain (multiples of 3+2).
For example, ch 23.
With colour A, Sc in the 2nd ch from your hook, *ch 2, sk the next 2 sts, sc in the next st; Rpt from across remove hook from loop and place a stitch marker if necessary to keep the loop from slipping. Do not turn.
At the beginning of the row, join colour B in the 1st ch-1 sp, ch 1, v st (dc, ch-1, dc) in the same ch-2 sp, *v-st in the next ch-2 sp; Rpt across, turn.
With colour A, ch 1, draw Colour A through the colour B loop to secure, ch 1, v st in the 1st sc, *v st in the next sc (skipping the next v-st) 2 rows below; Rpt from * across ending with a v st in the final sc. Do not turn, pick up colour B.
With colour B, ch 1, v-st in 1st ch-1 sp and in each ch-1 sp across.
With colour A, ch 1, turn, pull colour A through colour B loop, ch 3, v st in the sp between each v-st in the row 2 rows below, dc in final st 2 rows below. Do not turn, pick up colour B.
With colour B, sl st into 1st ch-1 sp, ch 1, v st in each ch-1 sp all the way across.
With colour A, ch 1, pull loop through colour B, ch 1, turn. V st in the 1st sp 2 rows below, v st in each sp between the 2 v sts 2 rows below across ending with a v st in the final ch sp 2 rows below. Do not turn, Pick up colour B, sl st into first ch-1 sp, turn.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern, repeat rows 4-7. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
