Learn how to crochet this beginner-friendly moss blanket. I started this blanket when we began thinking about starting a family and I was convinced that when we became parents it would be to a little boy, which inspired the colours of the blanket (although I think it makes a beautiful unisex blanket) I particularly love how dense the stitches are and the weight of it really feels beautiful resting over your lap. The size I created is perfect for a lap blanket or a cot blanket for when the little ones get older.
