This light green Grassy Moss Crocheted Afghan Pattern is the perfect way to decorate your home for spring.  Worked up in a pattern of crocheted diamonds, this free crochet afghan pattern is not only cozy, but visually appealing as well.  Perfect for adults and babies alike, this afghan makes a great project for the intermediate crochet fan, and even though it's worked up in one color here, you could easily mix and match colors to suit your needs or style.

I have the same problem as Leslie with the lack of a foundation row (NOT the foundation chain) and despite the assurance from Julia of Favecrafts there is no update, no clarification of the muddled instructions. Is the row after the foundation chain supposed to be all dc or are there ch-2 spaces involved??

I am having trouble with the Grassy Moss Afghan pattern is there a step between making the 149 chains and then row 1 - there does not appear to be any way to do row 1 without a base to work on. The diamond instructions are confusing??

Hi there, I updated the instructions to make the pattern more clear. Hope this helps! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Thank you I will try it again
