Crochet Modern Even Moss Blanket

Crochet Modern Even Moss Blanket

Hello! Hannah here. Thank you for stopping by for the Crochet Modern Even Moss Blanket pattern. I’m calling it modern simply for the design. The even moss stitch I’m using is still the same as in our other projects. (Which, I’m going to link a few others at the end of this post.)

For the past few months I’ve felt like I’ve made a lot of girl baby blankets, so I wanted to make something that would work for a baby boy. I love how modern-looking this blanket turned out, and I think it could also be pretty as a couch throw if you wanted to make it bigger.

I used the even moss stitch for this blanket, which is not too complicated (just alternating half double crochet and slip stitch) and gives the blanket a cool sort of chunky look. 

This blanket is worked lengthwise, meaning I made a really long chain so that the stripes would be vertical.  I decided to leave the blanket without the border since I liked the look of the ends, but I think it would also look really pretty with some tassels or some ribbing.

If you would like to see a tutorial of how to make the Even Moss Stitch, watch the video below for an overview. Since this blanket is just made with that stitch, I didn’t make a separate tutorial. 

I’m also recommending this as a really great beginner-friendly project since it looks so good without adding a border.

We’ve made lots of projects with this stitch if you’d like to see those as well. My mom has even made an Even Moss baby sweater using the stitch. One of these days, I hope to give that a try. It’s so cute! 

This  Even Moss Mock Cable Throw my mom made using Bernat Forever Fleece is another great beginner-friendly project that uses just a few rows of the even moss stitch to create a bit of texture or what she thought looked like cables.  That throw also uses single crochet stitch. 

Here’s one more blanket that my sister Nicolina made with really chunky yarn. I think it’s great to see the stitch worked up in different yarns to give you an idea of what it looks like. 

And the final one I’ll show you is this incredible Even Moss at Berry Ridge throw that my Aunt Cyndi made. It is so beautiful and really shows off the texture of the Even Moss. It is just stunning with her added fun fringe border too. 

I hope you enjoy learning and using the Even Moss Stitch as much as we all have. Good luck with your project.

Crochet Modern Even Moss Blanket


Half Double Crochet (HDC): Yarn over (YO), insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through three loops on hook.

Slip Stitch (SL ST): Insert your hook, YO, pull up a loop and pull directly through loop on hook. 


Chain 150 (or any even number) in White.

Row 1: Slip stitch (SL ST) into the second chain from the hook. Then half double crochet (HDC) into the next stitch. Alternate SL ST and HDC to the end of the row. The last stitch should be a SL ST. Chain 1 and turn.

Row 2: SL ST into the SL ST you just made then HDC into the HDC. Alternate again all the way across your row. Chain 1 and turn. 

Repeat row 2 for remainder of blanket. Always SL ST into a SL ST, always HDC into a HDC. Always chain 1 and turn.

To change color, when you reach the end of the row, insert your hook as normal for the last SL ST, but instead of pulling through with the same color, pull through with the new color. Then chain 1 and proceed as normal.

Here is the color pattern I used: *10 rows White, 2 rows Dark Country Blue, 4 rows White, 2 rows Dark Country Blue, 4 rows White, 2 rows Dark Country Blue, 10 rows White, 2 rows Heather Gray, 4 rows White, 2 rows Heather Gray, 4 rows White, 2 rows Heather Gray. Repeat from *

After you finish the blanket, you’ll tie it off and then weave in all the ends with a tapestry needle. Like I said before, I chose not to add a border, but you could definitely add one if you wanted to.

Usually after we finish a blanket, we lay them out on a flat surface and spread them out as evenly as possible, then spray water on them and let them dry. This helps to even out the tension and get the sides straight.

Thank you for coming to visit, best of luck with your project! We really love designing baby blanket patterns because they are so fun to be able to give as a gifts and it’s fun to think about other people using these patterns to make gifts for the babies in their lives. I think there is something special about spending the time to work on a gift to welcome a new person into the world.
