Moss Stitch Baby Blanket

Moss Stitch Baby Blanket

The moss stitch is a pretty crochet stitch that I used to make this little baby blanket. There are several versions of the stitch and I used the one below to crochet a preemie baby blanket for the 2014 NICU baby blankets for Christmas drive that Kathryn heads up over at Crochetville each year.

This was my first attempt at using the stitch and because I needed just a small blanket for the NICU babies, I chained 95 to begin using a H (5 mm) crochet hook. This resulted in a beginning chain about 22 inches long. Here are the details in US terms for crocheting a small baby blanket as shown using the moss stitch.

Crocheted Plastic Bag Keeper

Here is a crocheted plastic bag keeper made from what else – recycled plastic bags! This photo was shared with me recently from an on-line reader Joan. Joan crochet this bag keeper in black and white to go with her kitchen colors. She also added ribbon at the top for embellishment.

Joan’s plarn bag keeper was made using my crocheted plastic bag pattern.
