Soft Moss Blanket: FREE crochet pattern



Always wanted to try to crochet with fur yarn, but have doubts you can do that? Crochet with fur can be a pain, as it’s impossible to see the stitches, and almost impossible to feel them. But I think I found an easier way of working with furry yarn. Take a look at my newest Soft Moss Blanket free crochet pattern and try your hand on it. You will find row-by-row instructions as well as video tutorials showing how to crochet hexagon and half hexagon motifs with regular yarn. And then with fur 😊 Hope you enjoy!
