Wow!What a gorgeous blanket!How did you make the flowers and leaves,though ?

Mary Fogel

how do you get the pattern?

Peggy Ekstrom

I love your blanket!! Please direct me to the pattern and a list of the colors used!


I just LOVE your blog! I love everything about it - just my style!! A question about the beautiful Sweet Flower Granny Blanket above: It looks like you made the granny squares and the little flowers separate then attached them, right? Unfortunately, I could not find a link for the actual patterns for these (the granny squares and these particular little flowers), and how exactly did you go about attaching them? I really love the granny stripe blanket too. I will be starting a granny square blanket with a larger 3D flower for my 5-year-old soon. Looking through your blog gives me great ideas on how I want to connect the squares and how I want the edging to look. Keep up the beautiful work!


Your work is wonderful. I love looking at it. My son just (about an hour ago) asked me to make a blanket for my granddaughter's new (big girl) bed. This would be so perfect. Do you sell your patterns? Please let me know. I am in love with this and I'm sure she will be too.


Love your blanket, and I have tons of scraps that would work in it.
However, I do not see instructions; do not see how to get that touch of color behind the first set of petals; like the larger square and while I could double a basic square to get the larger square, can count stitches well enough to de-construct, BUT is the start a magic circle? how many double/triple ???? to start???


I love the blanket, it's amazing, the colour's great, :-)

Very pretty. I love the granny square blankets


This is an absolutely beautiful blanket. I love granny squares and the flowers as well as the edging are nice touches. :)


Glad I'm not the only one looking for the pattern.
I'm really enjoying spending time on your blog, you are very talented, and I thank you for sharing your gift!
Do you have plans to share the pattern for these squares? I would love to attempt one for my daughter.

Hello lovely Lucy, I see you are taking a well earned break. When you are back with your attic24 blog can you please help. I finally joined all my squares and have done some edging, there are so many colours I think I need to do something to improve it so was looking through your blogs at various edging. Looking at the above blanket I really like the last few rows. I see they are made up of uk doubles and trebles. so I started with a row of UK doubles but it's the corners, how do you get the corners to work? I tried to do it like on a granny square so three doubles in each of the chain spaces in the corner, then I googled and it said about doing just three in the corner. It doesn't look good. Pleeeeeeease help when you have time. Thank you muchly, Kat. x

Hi, Lucy, a friend just passed me this URL because she knows I love to crochet ... and I have so many yarn bits and bobs that I'd love to use on a version of this blanket! Only thing is, I can figure it all out EXCEPT for the little fiddly flowers. Did I miss your pattern/instructions for them?

I LOVE everything I've seen on your blog so far and will now be checking it on a daily basis!

Cheers from Texas --

What a fun outcome of a busy project! I want to make one too. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Lucy,

This blanket is amazing! Thank you for sharing its story with us. I am going to make one of my own, but I can't seem to find the pattern for the sweet flowers here on your blog. Would you be willing to share it with us? I'd love to have it.

Your blog makes me happy!


Beautiful as are all your blankets. But this is the best. Are you going to do a pattern for it? At least for the flowers, please???? Heck I'll
buy the pattern from you just contact me please. I love this blanket have just have to make it. Please, please please share the pattern for the flowers. Why don't you do a book? So many people would buy it.
Thanks for brightening my days

Hi, Lucy. i would just like to thank you so so much for your wonderful blog. It has been a life saver for me. I've been suffering from post natal depression for the second time, following the birth of my 2nd son. I find crochet and in particular you blogs, projects and tutorials a real inspiration and it has seriously helped me through some really bad days, so thanks for that. Now for the begging part, i really really love this pattern (sweet flower granny pattern) and was hoping you would share it with me. I can do granny squares, but i really love the little flower in the centre. Many thanks, Maoliosa.


Hi Lucy
Can I just say how neat your work is and I don't seem to be able to replicate it. More practice needed me thinks.

I love all your wonderful blankets and cushions. I am certainly planning to edge all my blankets in future as it truly makes a difference.
Looking forward to checking out more of your projects and seeing your TA DAH moments.


Please is there a pattern for this? I can't find it anywhere & can't figure out the sweet little flowers & leaves. I want to make this so bad
