What weight is the cupcake yarn.
What size us hook

Louise Ricci (U.S.)

I guess I have a question: If I have any questions about a step or anything else about the pattern, I can follow the step by step for the Cosy Strip Blanket?

Louise Ricci (U.S.)

When I saw this on Pinterest (via a link to this blog), I fell in love with the colors. Imagine my surprise that it's a British pattern and yarn company.

I looked to see if I could find it in the U.S. I could, but not cheaply. So, I converted pounds to U.S. dollars and made the purchase. I also bought three other balls of cotton viscose because the color of the red in the picture was beautiful. I bought red, black and silver. The total cost was 29.58 pounds (approximately $37.51).

I just received my yarn. I love all of it and can't wait to get started on the blanket. After I finish my current project, that is. I'd definitely order kits like this again from Wool Warehouse.

Ok, ignore my last rant, just realised the link brings you back to your blog (in a roundabout way). As you were! Just looking out for your interests! 😕😜 Merry Christmas all! 🎄🎁🍷 XX

Hi Lucy, I've just seen this http://pin.it/_51eew4 on Pinterest - not sure if you are aware or affiliated with these people but I couldn't see your 'Attic24' name mentioned anywhere. It's a shame that people can't think up their own ideas and resort to stealing others and passing them off as their own! Keep doing what you're doing, I love your work XX


Sandee, the kit has 15 different colored balls of yarn. The "90" is the number/color order of the stripes in the blanket. Each ball will be used to make 6 two row stripes throughout the blanket in random order (15 balls of yarn x 6 stripes = 90). Your first stripe, Row 1 is Cloud Blue and your last row, Row 90 is Sherbet. Hope this helps. Happy hooking!


where do we find the answers to all these questions?


ok stupid question....it said use 15 balls of yarn. But the list has 90 balls of yarn. Do I just 15 of the colors. Sorry, new to all this. Thanks

To alter blanket sizes what multiples do the stitches need to be?

Sharon Bradley

Would like to make this as a baby blanket size how many stitches would I need please?

Devorah Gelkopf

Your blanket is absolutely gorgeous. In what way does it differ from the original "cosy stripe" pattern?

Karin Nel

I just love your color coordination in everything you crochet. They're all beautiful!
Thank you for the pattern. 👌


Love the pattern

Cecelia Fuller

I assume I'm doing something wrong, but my rows keep getting longer and longer each row, and I though I was following this pattern correctly. anyone have any thoughts on why this could be happening?

dorothy baumgartner

OOPS! Found the size. Sorry, is 3:39 am here!

dorothy baumgartner

I saw this on LoveCrochet...fell in love! What a luscious blanket! Is this yarn available in the US? I must have missed it, but what is the finished size, please?


I love this blanket but the print is so small I cannot see it as I am old lol if you have a bigger print I would love it. Thanks for another beautiful pattern.


Is there a possibility of designing a knitting pattern for this blanket. I am unable to crochet, but love this so much.


I am sitting here looking at my finished cupcake blanket. It is so gorgeous- I have made all your blankets. The first one I made was the Cosy Stripe for my eldest daughter - the sides were so wonky but she loves it! I then made your Coast Ripple for my youngest, Granny Stripe (Coast Colours for my second) and Granny Stripe for my Mother in Law and Harmony for my niece's 21st! I made the Sunny Log Cabin blanket and keep it in the house to throw over my "children" if they come in late!!! I was going to keep the cupcake for that or for picnics but it is so beautiful and the edges are so straight I am going to give it as a 50th birthday present! Please start charging for your patterns as I would
buy them as they are released! You are a fantastic designer!


Has anyone made this as a double? If so, how many did you put in your starting chain? I'm a beginner and doing ok with crochet but working out chain length/ final size is bit beyond me yet! I've bought the yarn for a single but am tempted to upsize it. Thanks.

Chris Amsden

I am confused is this made with a DB crochet or a Treble crochet?

Ann Kelly

I'm loving making my lovely cupcake blanket for my grand daughter but I'm a little confused, 1st you chain the 198 stitches work your first row and at the end have 196 stitches? 2nd my work at one end has got off at an angle? I feel I need to unpick and restart


Love your blanket! It's the second one I am making. I'm just wondering: When I make a foundation that I can divide by three, the pattern does not work out. Shouldn't it be "divided by three plus 1"? Or am I missing something?

Moly Hamilton

I have just moved from a 4Bedroom doublestory house to a 2-Bedroom unit. I had to cull everything BUT not my wool. I have huge containers of wool and here I am buying more ! Who could resist these beautiful colours. I shall have to follow the instructions in this pattern. Wish me luck please
