Hello Crochet Friends!
It’s Cyndi! As you all probably know my younger sister Tiffany has great ideas, especially when it comes to designing crochet!
And I have so enjoyed learning the craft of crochet from her over the last year.
Recently, I was chatting with my nieces Hannah and Nico about their favorite crochet stitches and they both recommended the Even Moss Stitch!
And so I went home, watched Tiff’s Even Moss Stitch Tutorial on her YouTube channel, absolutely loved the stitch, and started crocheting!
And it just so happened, without either of us knowing, that we both ended up making blankets using the Even Moss Stitch at the same time!
Tiff made the most gorgeous version for our nephew and his new wife she called the Crochet Even Moss Mock Cable Throw that she made with soft and cuddly Bernat Forever Fleece that turned out so elegant!
Make sure to check it out if you haven’t already! (Tap any highlighted word in red to be taken to the pattern or the yarn.)
I decided to pair the Even Moss Stitch with the Front Post Single Crochet for this sister version.
You might recognize the FPSC (front post single crochet) stitch from the Berry Ridge Blanket I made a few months back.
I love the texture that the FPSC gives to the blanket, it’s like little knitting v’s cascading down one side.
I separate the rows of FPSC with rows of SC so the v’s fall on the same side of the blanket.
With this latest sister blanket project, I combined the Front Post Single Crochet with the Even Moss Stitch and finished it off with some long fluffy crocheted fringe.
I just love the result, and I love making fun fringe.
It is such a nice and relaxing way for me to finish off the edges of the blanket.
If you aren’t already familiar with the versatility of crochet fringe make sure to check out my video on crochet fringe that can be added to any crochet or knit project!
I have made lots of samples of fringe if you want to play around with some ideas.
You definitely can change it up any way you would like.
Be sure and scroll to the end of the post for the free printable pattern.
It’s my favorite thing that my sister Tiffany has done, is to provide a free printable version of the patterns at the end of each post.
So if this pattern isn’t right for you, look under the menu heading for textures, and you can find more blankets similar to this one with a free printable pattern.
