Hello and Welcome!
It feels like we just finished up Christmas and here we are kicking off the Valentine’s! We don’t stand on ceremony when it come to V Day around here, but the holiday colors sure are pretty!
When I was looking for inspiration for this blanket, I was totally smitten with all the boho vibes and I was especially inspired by boho colors in color blocking. I feel that Red Heart Super Saver has some of the best boho colors, so it was a lot of fun matching these up!
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.

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!
- It’s a good idea to weave in those ends with a darning/tapestry needle instead of crocheting over the top of them.
- Turn! Turning is the easiest way to keep you blanket from getting wonky.
- After finishing one color, turn it towards you so the back side is now facing you, then rotate it counter clockwise. Start with a new color in any Ch 1 sp. Again, this is awesome sauce for keeping your sides straight!
- Not every blanket needs a border! Don’t be afraid to skip it. If you edges are straight and consistent, there’s really no need!
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!
Sometimes it’s easier to shop your stash so we worked out some alternative brands for ya. We’ve matched each one in person so we know first hand they’ll play nice and look lovely! To see the exact amounts of each you will need to purchase and download the pdf. You can do that HERE.
