Easy Moss Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket

Do you sometimes just want to make something uncomplicated?  The easy moss stitch crochet baby blanket featured in this post, ticks all the boxes.

If it is all you are working on, you can definitely finish it in less than a week. Having said that, I have taken longer because I was also busy with something that needed to be done.

The border is quiet effortless and I had it done in a surprisingly short space of time.

HOW TO CROCHET THE GRANNY BORDER

Join the contrasting yarn in one corner of the blanket with a slip stitch;

Round 1:  Corner:  Ch2 (first stitch), dc2, ch2, dc3 in same stitch; 

Straight:  Ch2, skip 2 stitches, dc3 in next st,

Repeat the sequence and close first round with a ss;

Rounds 2 & 3:  Corners are done the same as in round 1;

Straight:  Ch2, dc3 in ch2-space of previous round,

Repeat the sequence and close first round with a ss;

The decorative border consists of:

Slip stitch in first ch2-space, dc3, ch3 with ss into bottom of  first ch (to form picot), dc3, ss in next ch2-space;

Repeat the above sequence around;

Corners:  only a ss - to prevent overlap. You can decorate the corners with tassels or picot stitches.
