Help! I have restarted this blanket 3 times now because I just can't seem to keep the same number of stitches in each row. Where am I going wrong? Do you have a stitch count per row or number of clusters per row? I just don't know what's happening...
Hoping you can help...


Really great tutorial. You explain it so well and I really enjoyed making it...now for the border!

I made this blanket last year in the months before and after my dad's death. It was comforting to just sit and get absorbed in my crochet and enjoy the softness of the yarn in my hands, and enjoy being swaddled in the blanket as it grew on my lap. This year, I'm enjoying the warmth of it wrapped around me in the evenings, and loving the rows of gentle colours. It has brought me a lot of comfort and I'm planning to start on the Moorland blanket soon! Thank you for creating something beautiful which has helped me at an important time.


Where is the link to the border?

Hi! I bought this kit at Yarndale and after I bought it I noticed there was no instructions-your staff told me to download them (I bought the original) but it doesn’t tell me what colour order-help! 😁

I'm losing it (perhaps). My blanket keeps growning. I've gotten in to the sixth row but it's gotten so wide. I've taken it out twice now. What am I doing wrong - is there a row count somewhere?

Hello, I have bought all your yarn and instructions for the Cosy stripe blanket, and my puppy just ate the instructions ! Please can you send me another set please?

There's a link to a yarn pack which of course you don't have to purchase but at least it'll tell you what yarn is being used.


Vicki, In her instructions above, Lucy told us to use DK yarn.

no where after all of trhis does it say what type of yarn to use makes a big difference


This is so beautiful! Thank you Lucy, for generously sharing it with all of us!

I have been looking for a new afghan pattern and this will work great. the only thing is I am going to have to print it out and change to us stitches. I am looking forward to making this.

Such a beautiful pattern! Thank you. I am beginner, taught from internet sites like yours - so grateful for the instructions

Judi Reed

Love this pattern! Flows well after I tightened up my count! I am looking forward to doing it again in maybe three green shades and one white... will need to work this out!


Hi. I've been crocheting this blanket for a loooong time but I seem to be going wrong somewhere and it keeps growing! I've sorted out out my width issues a couple of times by dropping a few judicious stitches (hoping the border will sort the wonky edges!). I've checked back though the pattern, I'm certain I'm dropping that extra stitch at the end of the first single trebles row but it still grows arghhhhh! Please could you provide me with a stitch count for each row of the four row repeat? Then I can pinpoint the row which I'm doing wrong and hopefully sort!


The detail of information you supply and the clarity of your instruction photos is simply amazing! You are very talented and a true teacher at heart! Thank you so very much for supplying this photo tutorial and instructions. I very much look forward to attempting this pattern.


I love your patterns. Finished the hydrangea and have the coast blanket waiting. I'm doing the borders on the cosy and have run out of the copper yarn. Nearly got there but only 1/2 way through the last side. Can you suggest another border that doesnt use as much yarn? I don't want to order more for just this side.

Georgia Kellers

I just found this pattern on the all free crochet site and love it. I did the many stripe granny pattern blanket last year as a toddler size. It is my favorite of many I've made. I'm looking forward to trying this pattern, even if I don't use the many colors again.


I just finished this beautiful blanket for my sister. Just have to put on the edging. Thanks for your hard work in posting this pattern for us.

How many stitches across if I only have a 6 skeins color pack?

I don't know how to figure it out so that I can make a lap throw. I don't know if I have enough without a twin size blanket.

Kathryn Grimshaw

Hello Lucy,
Thank you so much for this lovely pattern using the wonderful colours of Stylecraft
Special DK.
I have only recently found your web page and blog and I am enjoying it so much.
I used the colours of the hydrangea pack and I have been complimented on the finished result.
My blanket came out larger as I never thought that the edging would add to the dimensions and I am a loose crocheter.
I have enjoyed every moment of making this blanket and I love reading your blog, especially as I live near Skipton, and I also enjoyed Holidaying in Dorset this year.

Fay Searle

An absolutely wonderful pattern so hope I will be able to do it. To show how to make it on internet is marvelous and so very great to go step by step. Thank you 😊 so much for sharing.
