The Wicker Throw crochet pattern is an easy crochet blanket to work featuring the lovely moss stitch.

When it comes to crochet blankets, I love the moss stitch.  I love it’s simplicity, it’s texture and its weight.  The moss stitch simply makes for a beautiful blanket! It is also a wonderful stitch to experiment with colour.  I have worked several other blankets in this stitch including the Benjamin Throw Crochet Pattern and the True Colours Throw Crochet Pattern.

This crochet blanket is worked all as one piece and in two different colours.  It is worked side to side and then after the body of the crochet pattern is complete you will work the vertical rows in a surface slip stitch.  Surface slip stitches are slip stitches that are simply worked through the middle of the fabric and run along the top.


For this crochet blanket, you will need two different colours of yarn.  I invite you to choose your favourites! In my sample I have used a 100% acrylic yarn called Heartland by Lion Brand Yarn.  It is super soft and features a variety of beautiful earth tone colours.  The colours selected are as follows: Grand Canyon (Colour A) and Black Canyon.

I have paired the yarn with a 5 mm crochet hook and in the video below you will see me using a Birchwood Hook by Rowan Yarns – one of my favourites!

Free Crochet Pattern:

With Colour A, ch 235

Row 1: Sc in the 3rd ch from your hook, *ch 1, sk the next st, sc in the next st; Rpt. From * all the way across.  Ch 2, turn.

Row 2: Sk the first sc, *sc in the next ch-1 sp, ch 1, sk the next sc; Rpt from* across working your final sc in the ch-2 sp.  Ch 2, turn.

Rows 31 onward: Repeat Rows 7-29 a total of 9 more times.

Repeat Rows 7-9 once more.

Final 6 Rows: With colour A, repeat Row 2.

Work Vertical Rows:

With colour B, Starting at the bottom corner in the 5th ch from the end, join yarn with a sl st.

Working along the length of your blanket work a single row of surface slip stitches from one end to the other.  Fasten off.

Sk the next st along the end of the blanket and join your colour B once again.

Work another surface slip stitch row along the length of your blanket.  Fasten off. 

Repeat these surface slip stitch rows as often as desired across your blanket.  I skipped approximately 22 stitches in between each set of two vertical rows.

Once vertical surface slip stitch rows are complete, finish blanket by added tassels to the two ends of the blanket.

Fasten off, weave in ends.
