This is one of my absolute favorite stitches. I was in love with the moss stitch before I learned how to do it C2C, but now it’s sealed it’s spot as my favorite.
This simple c2c moss stitch baby blanket shows off the beautiful simplicity of this stitch while working up amazingly quickly.
I am a huge fan of baby blankets (as anyone who has been around here a while will attest to!) and I also love ones that are easy and work up quickly. This one fits the bill for both!
The Bernat Blanket Dappled yarn is awesome – the subtle color changes in the same familiar blanket yarn we all know and love. I made this blanket in record time.

Repeat row 2 until the next to last row, when there are only 3 sc, placing the last sc of each row in the ch-2 space.
Next to last row: Ch 2, skip sc, sc in ch-1, sc in ch-2 space (do NOT ch 1 before this st); turn.
Last row: Ch 1, sc in ch-2 space.
See what I mean? Easy peasy! You can add a border to this if you like, but I really liked the way it looked without one so I left it. It’s so soft and squishy – I just love it!
