The Even Moss Afghan Square crochet pattern is a beautiful square with a thick squishy texture!

And it is so easy to work! I love the texture in the even moss stitch.  It is the same on both sides and although it creates a solid fabric, it still has a little drape that is allowed by the half double crochet stitches.  The other stitch that you will find in this stitch pattern is the slip stitch, but don’t let that deter you! As the slip stitches are always alternated with the half double crochet below, they are quite easy to work!

A crochet afghan square worked in the even moss stitch

Welcome to week four of the Make it Your Way Crochet Along.  Thus far we have completed three different stitch patterns (four in each) for our crochet blanket.  I can’t wait to see which stitches you choose! To recap, you’ll find the previous three weeks of stitch options here:


Week One, Option A: Spiked Sedge Stitch Afghan Square Crochet Pattern

Week One, Option B: Suzette Afghan Square Crochet Pattern

Week Two, Option A: Almond Afghan Square Crochet Pattern

Week Two, Option B: Extended Moss Stitch Afghan Square Crochet Pattern

Week Three, Option A: Elizabeth Afghan Square Crochet Pattern

Week Three, Option B: Straight Cables Afghan Square Crochet Pattern

The Materials:

For this crochet along I have encouraged you to use any worsted weight yarn.  Each square will measure approximately 10.5-11 inches and you will make four of them in this stitch pattern to complete the blanket. You will need approximately 113 yards of a worsted weight yarn per square for the Even Moss Afghan Square.  For those curious, for my blanket I will be using the Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. Along with the yarn you will need a 6 mm (J/10) crochet hook.

PDF Copies:

A PDF of these squares will be available in my Etsy and Ravelry Shops AT THE END of this crochet along.  I will post them as two separate blankets, one including the squares for option A and one for Option B.  So stay tuned if you are looking for that PDF!

Pattern Notes:

  • Pattern is written in American English terms.
  • Pattern is worked in rows.
  • Ch 1 at beginning of row does not count as stitch.
  • Turn at the end of each row.
  • Weave in ends as needed.
  • To change the size of your square, you will need an even number of stitches for your foundation chain.
  • Free Crochet Pattern:

    Ch 36

    Row 1: Sl st in the 2nd ch from your hook, *hdc in the next ch, sl st in the next ch; Rpt from * across.  Ch 1 and turn your work.  (35 sts)

    Row 2: Sl St in the 1st st, * hdc in the next st, sl st in the next st; Rpt from * across.  Ch 1, turn your work.

    Rows 3 – 38: Rpt row 2.


    Join yarn with a sl st in the top corner st, [work 34 sc evenly across, 1 in the corner] 4 times, join with a sl st in the 1st st.  Fasten off and weave in your ends.

    NOTE: When working your edging along the top and bottom of the square you will have 35 sts instead of 34.  This means that at some point as you work across these edges, you will need to skip a stitch to make the 34.
