The moss stitch afghan is finished and I enjoyed crocheting this one. It’s another free pattern I found on Ravelry. I knew from the photos of other blankets I saw that the square would appear a bit skewed and was fine with that. I’m assuming it’s from the way that it’s crocheted, in a continuous manner rather than finishing off each round with a join.

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

My least favorite thing about this one is the flecks of color in the light areas – in this colorway I think it looks a bit dirty. It doesn’t bother me in other colorways.

My favorite thing about this one is the texture! Plus, it’s so soft and cushy feeling!


  1. It looks great!
    I saw the skewed look too when I looked at the link you provided. Most of my afghans are donated to 3rd world countries – there they only seem to care about how bright the colours are, so I’ve saved the pattern. Thanks for the link!

  2. Very cute but not sure I could cope with the skewed look to it. My “everything has to be perfect problem”. Love the color though and can’t really see the specks in the photo. I do like the look of the moss stitch and would like to try it with a different pattern.
