This the pattern & basic recipe/guidelines I used when creating my first temperature blanket in 2019. It includes instructions for the crochet moss stitch as well as guidelines for how to choose your colors, temperature range, and finished size.

My blanket is approx. 84 inches long by 48 inches wide; however you can make yours any size you’d like.

I used between 1.5 - 2 skeins each of 12 colors of worsted weight yarn plus small amounts of 2 extra colors I ended up adding halfway through the year; your yardage will vary depending on the finished size and hook/gauge you use.

I used moss stitch crochet with a size F/2.75mm hook and a gauge of 19 stitches/17 rows to 4 inches.

This is a free pattern. Email me at or message me here for any questions, comments or pattern support.

I blogged about the process of making this blanket on my website and you can find the posts about it here.

It was a fun project and I hope you like it too!
