Hi, I just love this blanket and am a third of the way through it. I've had a stupid thing happen. While driving on the busy freeway with my crochet gear in the back of the car, my son opened the window and the pattern blew out the window!! I couldn't get off the road to back and get it 😔 I just love the way it's coming along and love the way the colours go. I am wondering if you could please email me the picture of the order that the colours go in.
With love and hope Nardia x

I believe our stitches in three US are single and double crochet to their double and treble.


What is desired gauge for USA crocheter?


I love my stripe blanket! It is very cosy indeed! Thank you for the free pattern! Greetings from The Flanders, Belgium! x

Got back into crochet at the beginning of this year and have made a few throws in anticipation of feeling confident enough to do this project. Your so right when you say about the colours being everything. Never seem to find the right combination, but thankfully you have done all that for us, Looking forward to my order arriving. Thanks again.

Good morning, Lucy -- This pattern looks so complicated, but in reality it is actually quite simple to do. Your pictures make it so easy to understand how it's done. I'm almost finished with a multi-colored one and am so pleased with how it is turning out. Thank you so much for sharing!


I think it is about time I sent this message as I have been making quite a few blankets from you so very easy to follow blanket patterns, they have mainly been for babies and they were so lovely at the finish. A friend and I are doing lap and wheelchair blankets for senior citizens that are in nursing homes via a charity organization in Hull. I am now wanting to start on the cosy stripe blanket, could you possibly tell me approximately what size these blankets should be. I would so love to hear from you. And mainly many thanks for sharing your genius with us. Best wishes to you.
Kind regards

I loved making this blanket - it all came together quickly and simply, and my son adores the finished article. I've blogged about it here: http://caralmckee.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/crocheting-cosy-blanket.html

Plan to start on this tomorrow. have been looking to use up all my yarn.

This is beautiful, and I think any mixture of colors would work! I have nearly finished a shell pattern Afghan and this could be my next !! . I think any leftover yarn could be used but I'm not sure abt. the size the CM! Maybe I'll get on line!!


Can I ask a newbie question? I've just finished the Cosy stripe using the Stylecraft (slighty different shades, love it)and am wondering what people usually do with the leftovers? I must have around 1/3 of it left and obviously the colours work well. I'm more of a blanket/throw kind of girl rather than wee twiddly things and I don't know where to start looking for ideas for that quantity. Is this a really daft question?? Thanks!


Lucy, I have been reading your heartwarming blog for a while now and love the way you write so honestly and exactly the way your heart feels. I have been crocheting now for about 4 years and felt a bit inadequate as I seem to be the only one who has never made a blanket. We moved down to Dorset last year and I was going to make your Coastal blanket, but having left it until the end of summer, I decided the colours in your Cosy blanket look a lot more snuggly for Autumn/Winter. I am about to take the plunge and make a start on it tonight. Thank you so much for the pattern and all your yarny enthusiasm! By the way, Wool Warehouse are amazing - I ordered the kit online yesterday afternoon and it arrived today!!

Beautiful blanket. How many chains do u make for a single bed blanket. I want the width of blanket to be 145cm.


I love the pattern, going to use shades of purple for my daughter's from dark to pale.

Bev Camlic

How do you fasten off at the end of each color?


I started this last week. I was wondering how many times did you repeat the yarn colors and which rows did you repeat them?


Hi, I am also addicted to crocheting blankets with Stylecraft Special DK yarns, the colours are so lovely and I love mixing them in different combinations, they create gorgeous effects. I have only been crocheting for just over a year but I am totally obsessed! My three daughters each have at least 2 blankets each, and my newborn baby niece has one, I am always on the lookout for an excuse to make another blanket! I normally make granny square ones but your cosy stripe looks so nice I think I will give it a go next.


I had a stroke and my left side is paralyzed, Can anyone help me by telling me how to crochet 1 handed. I am right handed so thats good.


Thank you for so generously sharing your pattern and wonderful tutorial. The blanket is stunning.

I love this blanket. It was featured on Bhooked Instagram feed. But on their page, it had an owl on the corner. I definitely would like to add the owl. Do you have instructions for the owl? Or did Bhooked add the owl themselves? Thank you in advance.

Chandra Brown

I'm going to start my blanket this weekend! Thank you for such an exciting pattern.
