"Learn how to crochet a moss stitch baby blanket with this free pattern and video tutorial. Design your own pattern once you learn how to master the crochet moss stitch. This stitch consists of a single crochet and chain stitch. This pattern is perfect for a beginner at crochet. While I am calling this the moss stitch today, this stitch is often referred to as the linen stitch or the granite stitch. This pattern works up nicely. The blanket feels soft and has a woven texture. I just love the look and feel of this stitch. Today, I am showing you the pattern for a baby blanket. I think the it could also be used as a lap afghan to keep the legs warm and not drag on the floor."
