Pattern Crochet Speckled Moss Stitch Blanket:

ROW 1: Starting in the 4th chain from the hook, work a SC, CH 1. Skip the next chain then work another SC, CH 1. Continue working SC, CH 1 in every other chain. You should end with one SC in the last chain. CH 2 and turn.

ROW 2: Work a SC, CH 1 into the chain one space of the row below (in the space underneath the 4th chain from the hook). Skip the next stitch, then work a SC, CH 1 in the next chain one space. Continue working SC, CH 1 into the all the chain one spaces from the row below. End with a SC that is between the last stitch and the turning chain of the row below, but before you finish the stitch, pull through with Gray (you should have two loops on your hook when you pull through). Then chain 2 with Gray and turn. 

ROW 3: Repeat row 2 with Gray. When you reach the end of the row, pull through with White on the last stitch, then chain 2 and turn. 

ROWS 4 – 5: Repeat row 2 with White. When you reach the end of the 5th row, pull through with Medium Teal on the last stitch, then chain 2 and turn.

ROW 6: Repeat row 2 with Medium Teal. When you reach the end of the row, pull through with White on the last stitch, then chain 2 and turn.

ROWS 7 – 8: Repeat row 2 with White. When you reach the end of the 8th row, pull through with Teal Heather on the last stitch, then chain 2 and turn.

ROW 9: Repeat row 2 with Teal Heather. When you reach the end of the row, pull through with White on the last stitch, then chain 2 and turn.

ROWS 10 – 11: Repeat row 2 with White. When you reach the end of the 11th row, pull through with Pale Teal on the last stitch, then chain 2 and turn.

ROW 12: Repeat row 2 with Pale Teal. When you reach the end of the row, pull through with White on the last stitch, then chain 2 and turn.

Repeat lines 1 to 12 for the rest of the blanket, until you reach the desired length.

There are a few options for what you can do with the ends whenever you change color. You can choose to cut the thread every time you change it, leaving about 15 cm of tail and then wrap your tail on the back of your work and crochet over it in the next line, like this:

After you work the other thread, go back to the side of the blanket, place the hook under the tails you crocheted on, just to make sure they are safer. So just pull out the ends that are coming out.

Usually, they don’t like to crochet the ends because they tend to come loose, but with the moss stitch that allows them to be crocheted twice, don’t worry they will remain safe.

Another option for changing colors is that you can carry the white wire behind your work whenever you are not using it, so that it is always on the right side when you need it. You will still have to cut the ends of the colored lines, but this saves you from having to cut the white.

If you still have doubts, here is a quick video of another blanket that shows the same technique: what is this beautiful pattern Speckled Moss Stitch Blanket.

The last option is to cut the yarn every time and weave in all the tails with a tapestry needle, which is perfectly fine, just make sure you have a good TV show to binge while you’re doing it so it won’t seem too tedious!

Border:

To keep the edge of this blanket very simple (because it is sometimes difficult to prevent an edge from making your blanket curl with the moss point), then make the moss point twice around the blanket.

Round 1: When you finish your last two lines of white on the blanket, chain 2 and start working on the side, working a SC, CH 1 at the end of all other lines. Knit 3 SCs in the corners. When you get to the corner where you started, slide the stitch in the corner, then tie 2 and turn.

Round 2: Repeat round 1. When you get to the corner where you started, place the stitch in the corner and tie.

After you have finished your blanket, wet it and secure it on a foam board to block it, allowing it to dry overnight.
