Hi Lucy.

Could you please tell me how many chain did you make for the single bed size Coast blanket and where do I find the pattern for the edging.

Jana

Lucy have you any instructions for the little squares? I really want to make a blanket with those lovely squares.

Love your work, love the colors!!
Thank you so much,

Jana

Could anyone send me directions of how to crochet these ripples please
Thanks

this is for Lyn from WA, Australia.
I have trouble locating the top chain in the first treble (that's Australian terms, calling it a DC is using USA terms). What I do is place one of those ever so cute plastic safety pins that are made to be used as yarn markers in the top chain after I have made it.
The hole disappears as I wrangle with my blanket, but thanks to the pretty safety pin, I know where to look (er dig) to find it to put in my end V of trebles.
Without my 2 trusty plastic yarn marker safety pins, I could not have made this blanket.
Lyn, if you are wondering innovations.com.au sells them in Australia as do a lot of yarn shops here.

Dear Lucy. You are really a lovely lady a friend told me about Attic 24. I think I have worked out how to turn by dcr into the 3rd chain of the previous row . It took me awhile but have I got it right??? The end is kind of ripply, one end more ripply than the other.

Kind regards
Lyn. Western Australia

Lucy,
I just purchased your coastal ripple blanket packet from wool warehouse and received it today. I am in the US and ordered it from the US site. I assumed that since I was in the US that my pattern would come written in US crochet terms, especially since I purchased it.

Can you provide the pattern in US crochet terms. I could probably translate it, but I'm afraid I would leave something out and would not know until I'm far along into the project. I would be so appreciative. I can't wait to get started on the blanket. I'm very busy with my work, and have little free time, so it will probably take months to finish, but it's worth the wait.

Thank you,
Kerry

Is there a right side and a wrong side to this blanket. I have done 9 stripes and I think my right side is the wrong side! I think being left handed may have something to do with it! I also find it a bit more difficult doing the edging as your starting point isn't my starting point!

Jenny

Saw and admired your Cosy blanket while visiting my aunt, and resolved to make a 'Seaside' one similar. Chose the wools before realising you had a 'Coast' blanket, and found we had included similar colours. I love the ripple pattern, and am about to begin the major work. I promise I will do a trial sampler. Thank you so much for your inspiration!

Patricia

I have been looking for a seaside inspired pattern for a blanket for ages and couldn't get one, I knew what I wanted and Dorset and Cornwall are on our favorite places in the world list so yes when I came across this today I was flawed, there is was the idea I needed have just purchased the pack and can't wait to crochet it thank you Lucy xx

I have just sent for your Coast Blanket kit. This is my seventh Ripple Blanket I think I'm HOOKRD!!!! One done for my daughter, two granddaughters, daughter in law , dear friend and one I finished for a very dear friend who died just after she started it. This one I gave to the Hospice that looked after her. I love doing them I find it so relaxing, haven't crocheted for over 50 years until my Ripple addiction, I am now 86' oh and one for a friend that I did my own colours, I didn't think it came out as well as yours but she was very pleased with it. The last one I did took me just four weeks, I pick it up every available moment. Love doing them listening to music. Can't wait for my next one to arrive, hopefully to-morrow.

Gabriela Reeved

I want to purchase the coastal blanket kit for my mother. Im in US and a newbie to Attic 24. I need feedback on where to go to place order. Your help would be appeciated.

Hi Lucy

I love your work, I've made a Granny Stripe blanket (delicious colours) i was sad to finish it. I am currently making the Harmony, i wasn't going to do this one because it didn't look as bright but then i read your blog and changed my mind. I am just about to order the coast pack, I want to make it approximately 30 cm wider so will i need 2 packs?
Thanks Tracy

Pam

i am almost done with my coast ripple yarn blanket. i love the yarn and the colors. I can no longer use most of the yarn that i find in the states too hard on my hands. i love this yarn and it only takes 7 days to get her. awesome. keep up the good work.

Joy

Lucy, ever since I laid eyes on this blanket last year I have been dreaming about making it! I have finally received all my lovely Stylecraft colors and have begun. I absolutely LOVE this pattern/project. Very easy. Very relaxing. Thank you, thank you!!

Kendra Sleppy

This blanket is lovely! I will be using birthday money to order the kit ASAP. As it reminds you of your beautiful coast, it takes me back to our family vacations to Cape Cod and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. (Also, I used your Granny Stripe pattern to make my 11-year-old daughter a blanket for her bed, in colors that she chose. It turned out wonderfully and she loves it.)

Rosemary

Would love to do a coast ripple blanket. As we are going to NewEngland this year thought I would like to do those type of colours as not struck on the dark green and mustardy yello. Scared to pick though what do you suggest?

Iris

Dear Lucy,
I found your blog beginning of June and was enchanted. I ordered the cosy CAL pack, received it last week, started and ... the first 30 colours (60 rows) are finished!
Now I think about ordering the coast pack for my next project.
So many lovely things to crochet... don't know what to start first.
Greetings from Lübeck / North of Germany

Diana Curan

Absolutely love your blanket so very clever to mix those beautiul colours together they are my favourite also, I was wondering if I could ask advise from you, I would dearly love to crochet a ripple blanket but being disabled my hands cannot a lot of stitches, I manage granny squares ok but not to much larger could you please advise me if it is at all possible to make ripple pattern in like granny squares and join them together, I so love your blanket and would really like to be able to do a ripple pattern, I am sorry to worry you with this request but if you have any thoughts at all I would very much appropriate them. Thanking you kindly, Diana Curan

Elsie Pop

So fantastic Lucy, what a great way to use holiday memories as a colour palette. My house is full to bursting with blankets already, but I need to do this with some of my own holiday colours!

Yvonne

I love you and your blankets! Thank you so much for sharing - especially your colour work! I have been wanting to make a ripple blanket for ages, and never dared to start. You gave me courage!

Annabel

It's taken 4 attempts but finally got my first row done with the right number of stitches and onto the second colour, so excited about this blanket.

Poppycreates

Hi Lucy,
this blanket is so beautiful, thank you for the inspiration and sharing it with us, love the colours like ocean waves. I really have to start to work on a blanket soon.
Have a lovely day,
Renata.

I am wanting to make another blanket with random stripes but am full of self doubt when doing this. Your explanation of how you choose the colours sounds similar to what I did with my sea and sand blanket and so gives me confidence. It is interesting to see the similarity and the differences in our choice of colours. (11 the same). I am also copying your idea with winding yarn round pegs though not having wooden pegs I bought some craft ‘lolly’ sticks.

Thank you for your ideas.

Sue

Thank you for sharing this. I love the blanket and the photos taken in my favourite county of Dorset.

Sharon

Hi Lucy,
I just finished the Cottage Ripple and was sad when I came to the Grape. Now I need to do the border. I must loosen up while crocheting as I needed extra to finish. Most was just one row but did do a few with two. So have set it aside and chose colours for the Coast Ripple. (I have extra skeins) :) I really enjoy your blog! It keeps me smiling and is definitely one that is happy.
I tried your subscription for your blog but it isn't working. I sent you some coffee and sweets change. I donated to your site through Paypal. I don't know where to put my photo of my blanket.
