Thank you for showing us how the new colors compare mixed in with the current colors. It helps a lot to see them side by side!


The new colors look fabulous! Thanks for showing us how they fit in with the existing colors!

Oooh, such nice colours! Gorgeous colour filled post- thank you 😊❤❤❤


What is needed is a proper pretty pink that has some depth while not being garish or so faded it is insipid. Not so sweet that is is sickly either. The greens are still not right either, which as one of my favourite colours is disappointing. The range has many colours but mostly they are not quite 'nice' enough. Which is a great shame and very frustrating really. When they are all jumbled up together they do become acceptable and some get either toned down or enlivened by their more upbeat neighbours.

Yellow is a lovely colour but very hard to dye up apparently. The buttermilk is lovely and my favourite of the new range. I have seen the colours already on another blog post and the peach seemed a little more subtle in the picture there. I quite like it though. I am not sure why it takes so long to add colours to the range. They should also remove a few in my opinion. The eggshell blue was disappointing and very washed out looking, a shame as I was looking forward to it.

I generally find the range of colours in yarn just not there. I think it is because mostly producers cater for knitters and looking at podcasts etc., they seem to favour really rather sombre and limited colours of neutrals and naturals while eschewing more colourful options. Hopefully with the popularity of crochet on the rise that is changing. Embroidery floss offers several hundred colours by comparison.

Lovely colours & well done for keeping Mum for so long. I love looking at colour palettes & when a big hardware chain was closing down,(in Oz) I picked up a wonderful lot of paint colour charts & now wished I'd also grabbed the single paint chips as well, so I could play. The hydrangea blanket is looking good. Thanks for the sneak peek. I've more hydrangea fabric I'm hoping to use soon. Take care.

The new colours are pretty and the Hydrangea blanket is tempting. I've just finished Moorland Blanket no.2 and about to start a third with the left-overs.Kind regards from Staffordshire.

Wonderful colors! Just in time for spring/ Easter. The blanket is coming along beautifully.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Gorgeous new colours, I love how you've put them together with the existing ones. I'd spend a lot of time playing with them too I think if I had all the pegs. So much possibility! CJ xx

Really like the new clolouis especially the buttermilk. Unlike you Lucy I adore yellows. My husband has asked were the yellow for the gorse is in the moorland blanket! As I am so loving doing the moorland perhaps I will do a second and include a bit of yellow! Look forward to seeing the new colours in the flesh, although you have done a great job with your peg combos!


So excited to start hooking this one. Beautiful colors (as always), and the pattern looks squishy soft.


Beautiful new colors. Admire your ability to keep quiet about this. Very glad your advice convinced me to try this yarn. Looking forward to new blanket. Between you and Christine (Winwick Mum) I stay very busy.


The new colors are gorgeous! So is your hydrangea blanket! Oh my, it's incredibly tranquil and happy looking. I love the textured look of the blanket, too.


Oh, my, you've been quit since august? I deeply respect you from now on, 8 months of silence, wow. Love all three though I don't like acryl as much as I love cotton. On to next week!

I love your new blanket!
Really like the new colours, esp vintage peach :)
Can you persuade Stylecraft to offer these pretty colours in a wool mix yarn???


Really liking the mushroom colour ❤️ Great blanket too!


I too am a student of color from way back and just love the mushroom color they have added. Peach and yellow, well I could leave those. Will be ordering your Hydrangea pack and a few balls of the mushroom just to see what project I can fit it into. April 7th it is!

Thanks Lucy for the lovely inspiration... Warm regards from Canada.

love Christine xx

So pretty! Is it wool or acrylic? I must go see. You are a color magician, Lucy.


Love the new colours. Although I am in love with the whole range I think! Especially as you put them together so well in different blankets :)


Pretty pretty shades Lucy. I can bet that was a hard one to keep quiet about! I love it when a range adds new shades, and like you, I don't think there can ever be too many. I have terrible trouble with my favourite shades. As you know, I'm a pink and blue girl, but I find it almost impossible to find good shades of grey/blue yarn and browny pink. The pinks are either too blue, too peach or too pink, and pale grey/blue shades are almost non existant. I love petrol and storm blue, but wish with all my heart that they would do paler versions. They either veer to duck egg or silver grey. It's a shame. I'm always on a search on yarn sites for dk weight yarn in these colours. They are like gold dust! Maybe one day Stylecraft might produce some. That probably would tip me over the giddy edge and my fingers would catch fire from the rapid crochet I'd be doing! ha ha!

I'm liking the buttermilk. I too don't really feature yellow in my makes but that is a nice one. I'm loving the Hydrangea blanket. Sooooo pretty.

Happy crocheting!

Much love Nessxxxxxx

p.s I've finally managed to get my yarn act together and peg the yarn colours like you do. OH MY WORD, what a difference being organised makes! x


The three on their own would make a pretty baby blanket, they are really my cup of tea, I love your colour combos but at times they can be a bit bright for me ,hence your cupcake blanket was the first I made, the new one is also sing to me. But it would be a boring world if we all liked the same. I love your blog and wizz over when a new one pops up.
Thank you for your colour indulgence.


Love all three new colours and am eagerly waiting to order my new blanket pack too :-) xxx


All three are very pretty! I think mustard is one that's hard to pin down - it changes so much in different lights. But my favourite is still spring green :)


Love the last 2 colour pallets
And look forward to getting the new colours.....so I have them all again
