The crocheted moss stitch has always been a favorite of mine, and I’m so excited to be able to use it for this modern, COZY, alpine lodge worthy blanket! Isn’t the ripple texture amazing? This is a classic that can go in any space, and it’s awesome for gift giving. Shall we go ahead and welcome fall and winter with open arms and this blanket?! Ha! It works up quickly with chunky weight yarn and is super fun. Read on!
You can see the free pattern below, or you may purchase the ad-free, printable version from Etsy HERE, or grab the kit from Lion Brand HERE (available in many color options).
Every so often I want to make a blanket pattern that’s classic yet different enough that I’d want to show it off in my living room. This is one of those blankets! It has an eye catching texture, and can work for any gender and just about any interior decor style. The stitches really pop, and it almost appears to be knit, which I really love.
The ripple moss stitch is a fairly simple stitch pattern after you practice a few rows. It’s a one row repeat, and while it takes some concentration and counting the first few tries, it does become relaxing and enjoyable. It entails just enough concentrating that you don’t get bored, but it’s not so complicated that you have to give up!
Definitely try the pattern out on a small swatch first before starting the blanket. This way, it’s easier to catch any issues or difficulties and correct them. I’d say this is probably more intermediate than easy. But maybe I’m wrong! Once you have that one row, you’re set.
This throw blanket is crocheted with Lion Brand Hue + Me Yarn, which is a chunky #5 weight. NOT to be confused with super bulky, which I use a lot. It’s between a worsted and a super bulky, so it’s just right. Really, it’s a great yarn because it has a super high quality look and feel, and also great color options.
While my throw blanket is a classic cream, you can choose any color or colors that you like! Half the fun is being creative, and doing what appeals to you.
Have you seen the colorful scrap moss stitch blankets online? I think this is what most people picture now days when we talk about a moss stitch or ripple moss. Those are so pretty, but I love seeing a similar look with the chunky yarn and a solid color. It’s super versatile!
Again, I just love the beautiful, yet understated texture and stitches that pop with the slight ripple. I hope you love it too!
Alright! Let’s get to the pattern already. 🙂
Read on below for the free pattern, and just a reminder that you can also grab the printable PDF version from my Etsy shop HERE.
This modern, warm blanket is worthy of a place in an alpine lodge and looks stunning in any
space. The clean lines, defined stitches, and slight ripple makes it both appealing and
practical. It’s fun and relaxing once you’ve gotten into the pattern as it’s just a one row
repeat. Perfect for gift giving, and an awesome go-to blanket for anyone. Get ready to cozy
up this fall and winter in this timeless beauty! Two size options available.

How To Crochet the Moss Stitch AKA Granite Stitch
This project sponsored by Lion Brand Yarn. All opinions are 100% my own.
Do you have any plans to make a video tutorial for us visual learners? I know how to do the moss stitch from many of your other patterns. I also know how to do a ripple stitch, but reading through the pattern, I am so lost. Maybe I just need to grab my hook and yarn and just do. Sometimes just doing and not questioning actually helps me too. Silly as it may seem. I still like the video tutorials though too!
Love all your patterns! Thank you
