Hello and Welcome!
Like all crocheters I’m a very tactile person. I feel fiber art is 50% the making of the thing and 50% of what the fibers feel like while making the thing. Sometimes it’s “OMG! I don’t care if I make something that should never see the light of day, I HAVE to use this yarn!” Enter Joann Big Twist Living.
If you haven’t used this, you totally should give it a go. It’s a limited color line, but very Paintbox Simply Aran. I. love. it. so. much. They say it’s anti-pilling and I can’t speak to that yet, but like PSA it was really fab to work with and it has washed up really well so far. The colors? Well what little they do have was enough to speak to me so here we are.
What is the Infinity Moss Stitch?
Also known as the Linen stitch, the Moss stitch is a beginner friendly stitch. It consists of a single crochet and chain stitches (sc, ch 1). The Infinity Moss is the same concept as the Infinity Granny just different types of stitches. It can either be worked in to a square or a rectangle.

Fasten off, Weave in ends.
Want an easy way to keep track of each row? We sure do, so we include row trackers in our PDF’s! You can download that HERE. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have something to physically check off, I spend more time counting and recounting instead of crocheting!
We feel the Infinity Moss is pretty easy to crochet, we do have a few tips for ya to make it (hopefully) easier yet. You can always do what works the best for you, but these are what we find to be tried and true for us!
- Fasten off and weave in ends after each color change.
- It’s best to weave in ends with a darning needle instead of crocheting over them.
- Keep those sides straight by turning the blanket after every round.
- Not every blanket needs a border. Don’t be afraid to skip it!
No border on this one! I felt this blanket shined without it so best to leave well enough alone!
If you have any more border ideas to share, leave us a comment below!
If you follow along here, you know this is where we usually add any brand alternatives to the featured color story. Unfortunately for the foreseeable future we’re going to discontinue this feature. Due to yarn shortages, yarn company’s struggling to keep up and discontinued colors, it’s becoming harder and harder to be consistent in offering this to you.
We do have some (we hope) exciting new things coming your way so hang in there with us folks!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
