Hi lucy
I just noticed this amazing blanket cal. Indeed I'm pretty much beginner in ripples and have done a ripple blanket project by learning from youtube which is almost finished. I have problem in bordering on 2 lenghts of my work. Should I make 2 stitches on every dc(us terms) stem? I appreciate your guidance.
Love

Hi, I have just started this blanket (excited but a bit daunted as I’m pretty much a beginner!) and wanted to check if the rows beyond row 1 should also be crocheted into both front and back loops? Thanks!

MaryJo

Hi Lucy I am in love with this yarn! It may be me but I haven’t seen any yarn this nice in the US, so I’m hooked! Now, for my question: I don’t crochet like anyone else . I was taught by my grandma from Sicily left handed. I hold my Hook and my yarn in my left hand , it normally produces the same stitch , however I’ve noticed that my mountains and valleys are not as defined as in your photos. I’ve checked my stitches and placement and to me it looks ok. I’m in row 4 should I start over or continue as is?

Hi Lucy & fellow CAL's. I've managed to start & I'm loving the colours. The cast on my arm was removed on Wed, I was so excited but Thurs was a nightmare of pain & I thought I might have to forget crocheting for ages. However, Fri morning arrived & the pain level had dropped from nine/ten out of ten to a three!!!! I was able start on Sat albeit slowly & carefully.. So happy.

I can't believe it but I've actually made a tension sample for the first time & its a good job because I thought I was a tight crocheter but I'm not. So thanks for the persuasion Lucy, saved me some hassle later on! Plus I found my beautiful project book & have actually sorted the yarn & made a list of all the co!ours with samples. You are soooo good for me lol. I'm about to start the first mustard row now - thank you for this great start. xxxx

I am following you from New Palestine, Indiana, United States. I ordered my yarn for this pattern and it’s the first time I’ve ever ordered yarn from overseas! I am in love with this site, so many patterns I want to try, but am anxiously awaiting starting this project tomorrow!

Diz

Hi Lucy, will there be a pattern for the leaves as well in the CAL, if not could you point me in the direction of where to look as I would also like to add leaves to the blanket at the end... and I could be making those as I have the wool in ready and waiting.....

Christy Hinkle

Lucy, Thank you for doing this blog. I have been reading it for about a year and have enjoyed it very much. I have made several projects you have posted. VERY FUN!! I am very excited to be participating in the CAL starting in January. I have ordered my yarn and am hoping it gets here in time (I am in the US). Looking forward to what you are going to be posting during the coming year. Thank you again. Christy

Joy

Hi Lucy
I am obsessed with your fantastic blog since I saw someone making a ripple baby blanket in our local art shop this summer and she told me about Attic 24. I have learnt to crochet but not sure I could do a blanket yet. Is there an equivalent knitted version? I’d love to join in. Or if someone else has a knitted pattern? Thank you. I’m borrowing your idea of a log to wish on for New Year’s Eve. Just collected some greenery for it. Season’s greetings to you and your lovely family. Love Joy x

Kristen Skinner

Lucy, Don't worry about emailing me back...I figured it out and the yarn is ordered. Can't wait. Thanks, Kristen

Kristen Skinner

Hi Lucy, I am hoping to be able to participate in this CAL! I have always wanted to do one. I tried to order the yarn from the Wool Warehouse, but my credit card wouldn't go through. I am thinking it's because I am in the US and it's sold in GBPs. Do you know what I should do to purchase them? Thank you so much, Kristen

Jo

Hi Lucy,
I'm a newbie to crochet. I only started a couple of months ago. Although I love your colour palette, I've decided to use colours that match my front room so I can snuggle up on the sofa and show off my creation! This will be the first blanket I've made so fingers crossed. I'm so glad I stumbled across your blog. I can't wait to crochet along with you and everyone else,

Violante Medeiros

Dear Lucy, I'm a reader and follower from Portugal and I'm not sure if I've ever written to you before. Somehow, this colour combination just caught my attention. It s the perfect translation of the autumn fire, the warm colours, the approach of winter and the need and reach for cosiness and a sense of home. :) Thanks for inspiring the way you do!:)

Helen Lightly

This is so exciting, I can't wait to get started ☺️ my yarn has arrived and I'm all ready to go! Thank you for another beautiful post x

Kay

Sorry I missed the deadline for voting for you but I know you will win!

You sent me the name of your lovely blue flower that you had in one of your flowerpots, LOBELIA. That flower will always be LUCY LOBELIA for me!

Thank you for all the beauty you bring into the world.
Happy Christmas!

Rachel Forrest

Lovely! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Thinking of the community in Skipton after hearing the dreadful news about Jodie in Aldi, so sad for her loved ones.
Hope you have a wonderful time with your family and enjoy the slightly longer days! Spring is coming! Xx

Jessica Wyke

Happy Christmas Lucy. Can't wait to open my yarn pack Christmas day...I have resisted so far and so looking forward to seeing those beautiful colours. Hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful Christmas x

Nadine G

J'espère que vous avez passé une belle journée de Solstice d'HIVER- Je vous embrasse.

Caz

Thinking of you today Lucy. We've reached the winter solstice....all down hill to summer from here!
Looking forward to joining you with the woodland blanket.

Lesley Adams

Hi Lucy, I would like to make 2 throws out of the yarn pack for my sofas, do you think that is possible, I thought I would half the number of chain.

Abi

Fingers crossed Santa is bringing me a Woodland Blanket pack ;) Looking forward to joining the CAL! You got my vote too! :)

Laura

Hoorah! This is all a bit exciting... I was amazed at how reasonable shipping to NZ was, and now I'm thinking I should get some of those cute stickers from Elliebeth.... ;)

Gail Hollis

The colors are beautiful!!! You are a color wizard.
But I am not a fan of acrylic. Are your colors available in wool or cotton?
I am happy to cast a vote for you 😊 as I have been reading and enjoying
your blog for years. Thanks for all the inspiration and lovely jaunts into your world.
I wish I could wiggle my nose and be there to see it in person. My ancestors are from England and Wales so I do come by my wishes honestly. Until that day when I can pop into the coffee shop and join you, I will be content with the crochet and scenery you send my way.
Thanks, Lucy, you are a treasure!

I voted ! In December 2015 my daughters gave me 2 packs of the Coast yarn so that I could make a king size blanket. After about 75 cm realized it was too wide but inside of starting over I ordered another pack of yarn. It took me 22 months to finish with a 3.5mm hook and is 280 cm x 236 cm. It is beautiful but I am not ready for another ripple. Just started the cosy strip with the Sunny yarn pack following the order for granny sunny strip AND I am making it the size of the pattern. Merry Christmas to you and your family and many thanks for all you do to inspire me.

Karen

I am thinking about participation. I love your yarn colors. How can I found out how much the yarn and shipping costs would be to USA?
