Hello and Welcome!
Awhile back I was shopping for more yarn that I couldn’t live without and I came across this kit on WECROCHET (I don’t think its available any longer folks) and I fell in mad love with these Brava Worsted blues. I couldn’t check out fast enough!
So I’m super stoked to share this blanket. I mean seriously. I could stare at the Solstice Heather blue for days!
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.
