Crochet Social Textures Blanket
This is called Social Textures because it’s really a simple design of moss stitch in the round followed up with touch of texture. The social part came from Mikey since I talked to others the entire time I crocheted this blanket. It’s easy to remember the repeat and you don’t always have to look down at your work.

I break a few rules on this one, but I think the end result is a nice square. I use a hdc in the corner to close the sc rounds to create a ch-2 sp, and a sc to close the dc rounds to create a ch-1 sp. By doing this, it always keeps you centered in the corner spaces.
This blanket is exactly the same as the original, except it is a rectangle instead of a square. I chose to use 5 Caron One Pound balls to make this design and the blanket has come out to a nice 62″ x 72″. It fits the top of my queen-sized bed. But don’t limit yourself to 5 colors. The textured rounds play into the moss stitch rounds and really this opens the blanket up to so many color option.
