Moss Stitch Query James C Brett JB661

I am about to start knitting the jacket but find the instruction for the moss stitches is different from what I have been told. I thought moss stitches are : 1st & 4th rows - knit, purl, knit with last stitch K. Then 2nd & 3rd rows - purl, knit, purl etc with last stitch P.

However, this pattern only has 2 rows :roll_eyes:

There’s a difference between British and American moss stitch. American moss is a 4 row pattern while British moss stitch is a 2 row pattern which is like American seed stitch (a 2 row pattern).

Since this is a British pattern, this follows a 2 row pattern stitch.
