So the linen stitch and the moss stitch are the same in crochet but we quilters are used to that aren’t we?! (The same block having more than one name.)
I decided to make another baby blanket using this stitch and have a purchased pattern that was included in a kit I bought from Bluprint (formerly Craftsy) that had directions for both a lap and baby blanket. For those of you following along on my crochet adventure, I searched for a free pattern to share and you can find it at this link. It’s basically the same as the pattern I’m using except mine has a crocheted border to finish it off.
I’m using a different yarn this time – Caron Cotton Cakes and the colorway is Lavender Fields. I haven’t seen this one at my Michaels but I ordered it online at their website.
Hook size is H. It’s a worsted weight yarn but definitely a lighter worsted than their Caron Big Cakes yarn.
It’s a super easy pattern to crochet and if you get bored easily it might not be for you but I like patterns that I don’t have to stop and read each row when I’m watching something on my iPad. Right now I’m binge watching the show MidSomer Murders on Netflix! Keith goes to bed, I pull out the crochet hook and my iPad, put my headphones in and I’m all set to crochet for a few hours!
