Finish one, start one

I debated what afghan to make next and after a false start on a granny stripe that I felt had holes that were too big, I decided on a linen stitch pattern also know as moss stitch. I have a Craftsy kit to make from this pattern so I decided I’d try it out in a square blanket from this free pattern I found on Ravelry. Normally I don’t like square patterns but it’s a baby blanket and I don’t mind square so much at that size.

Yarn is Caron Big Cakes – colorway is Cake Roll. Hook size is H.

Once I figured out how to start my block with a magic circle (YouTube videos helped!), I’m finding it an easy pattern to crochet.


  1. Love these colors and love this stitch. Never tried the Big Cakes yarn skeins before – love the concept of color changes without adding a new skein – game changer!

  2. I know how to knit the moss stitch but I didn’t realize that you could crochet it. Thanks for the link to the pattern – I’m going to check it out!

  3. Oooh, I like this! You’ve got me hooked on afghans now. I’ve made one of the easy ripple pattern you posted and I’m almost done one in the other ripple pattern too. Next I’ll try this one. I love the Big Cakes and pick one up with a coupon each time I go to AC Moore or Michaels. Thanks for feeding a new addiction!
