I love the look of the crochet moss stitch. I decided to make a few things using this simple stitch, starting with a Moss Stitch Crochet Dishcloth.

All you have to do to make this unique-looking stitch is a chain and a single crochet stitch. This makes a great beginner-friendly crochet project that is quick once you get the hang of the stitching. I was able to start cranking these out in about 30 minutes after my hands got used to it.

I did use a smaller crochet hook than what I usually use for my dishcloths that I have patterns for. It just seemed to make the stitch look neater with the smaller hook.
