Hi Lucy, Have started on this and loving the easy stitch! I am playing fast and loose with the stripes though, as I wanted to do some thick stripes and some thin ones, so I worked out a plan sellotaping strands of the coloured yarn - 1 strand = 2 rows. Fingers crossed that it will turn out OK. Will post a pick to FB when I have finished. I really love these hydrangea colours!!!!

I am a relatively new crocheter and love this pattern and woolpack so much I have ordered myself one. A quick question- I couldn't wait to get started today so made a quick 'dummy run' with some old yarn. I did 2 rows but ended up with 40 shells, as opposed to 45. Can't for the life of me work out where I went wrong. Besides from this everything is very straight and 'un-rainbow like'. Have I missed too many stitches?

I want to weave in ends as I go along but can't figure out the front or back of work. I'm a leftie but crochet right handed so things can get confusing at times for me. Thanks!

This is the first time I've been to your site. I just have to say that the way you do things is awesome. This is the first time I've seen anyone use a needle to show exactly what stitch you are talking about and can't tell you how much that helps over an arrow. Others pictures aren't as close either. Also, I am just having my first experiences with the UK version of crochet terms and you are very mindful of that throughout your tutorials. I think I will adapt much quicker with your instructions and it will soon become second hand. I will be exploring your site often! Thanks so much, you are awesome.

The colours for this blanket are lovely. Think I will make a blanket using these colours over the summer.

My pack arrived today. Straight after dinner I set to.... such beautiful colours. I'm having trouble with tension. Did a tension piece using 4mm for foundation and 1st row. Went down a size to 3.5mm. Have now completed 2rd row and it measures 15cm. It's recommended it should be 12.5 - 13cm. HELP! PLEASE!

Helen

Can't wait to try out your happy hydrangea blanket. The colours are fantastic and I love the texture. I expect I'll start it before finish all the other projects I have on the go!

Charleen

Very beautiful...just love the colours and the pattern. Hydrangeas are also my favourites in the garden. Just in time for our cooler evenings in South Africa. Thank you so much and well done.

Susan Oliver

Thank you Luck for this lovely blanket I will download the pattern and hope to order the pack in a few months
when I have finished my second cosey stripe for our bed and a Ripple for my son in laws cousin.Once again you have given us all another beautiful blanket you are an amazing lady sending you a big hug.Susan

I've been struggling with crochet for two or so years now. I find the stitches easy enough its just knowing where to put them ! This has to be one of the best ( and Ive looked at loads ) visual description of where the hook is placed that Ive came across.
I think i could maybe manage this .
Thanks so much .

Jackie

I can't wait for my order to be delivered to Australia! My Nan grew hydrangeas and they remind me of her so much. And this was released on what would have been her 103rd birthday so I'm sure you all understand that I NEEDED to buy it for myself. It is more beautiful than I anticipated. Thank you Lucy for continuing to create beautiful pieces to share with us. By the way, do you have a pattern for the gorgeous little sample flowers? They are so cute and would look lovely as embellishments. Xx

Leah

Love your work so much Lucy. I was looking for a new project I could do while watching tele and not needing to concentrate as much as some of my other projects. This seems like the perfect choice and my pack is on the way :) Thanks again for your beautiful patterns and colour choices.

Annie Brodrick

Lucy, I have really been looking forward to seeing your newest pattern and I must say, your timing is perfect. Spring has had somewhat of a slow start. After having a false start in the beginning of February followed by a heavy snow, it felt like it wasn't ever going to return! By the end of March the Daffodils began popping up and now even the Forsythia is blooming. The colors of this Hydrangea blanket are gorgeous and so welcome. Thank you Lucy, I believe spring has truly arrived : )

Hi Lucy
This stitch looks easy even I can do it. At the moment I am doing the cosy stripe blanket cupcake and I have the pack ready to do the coastal blanket as it was a present for my 64th birthday. I will carry on with speed to get the cupcake and coastal blanket done so this new one can be done. I am now a blanket junkie. Love your site and can't wait for your next wonderful idea.

Gloria Garmon

Lucy, your patterns are all wonderful. I've enjoyed hooking four of your blankets thus far and like both your color choices (as well as working with the Stylecraft yarn) and the soothing rhythm of your stitch choices. Hydrangea seems like another winner.

Bex Crowell

Love this blanket and plan to make it. However, Lucy, I have to tell you that lately, every time I've tried ordering from WoolWarehouse, it will go along fine and then "The Site Can't Be Reached" sign will pop up and I can't get back into the site at all. I have tried and tried but no go. I've had to jot down all your colors and go to another yarn provider and ordered them all so I can't wait to get them in the post. But there's got to be something wrong with WoolWarehouse web site. I have successfully ordered from them before, so I know it worked for me then, but not lately ! I'm just glad I found a place that carries all these same Stylecraft yarns (Deramores in the US). Thank you also for putting the whole instructions in this blog page! My print is humming.

Dee Tippett

Another GORGEOUS pattern and your colour choices... oh my.
A question: I think the first corner says dc, ch1, dc whereas the other 3 corners say dc, ch2, dc?
Which is correct, please?

meredith

oh my gosh I can't wait to start this fabulous blanket!! You create such beautiful pieces

Susan Taylor

When will the hydrangea yarn pack be ready to buy.....Cant wait to get stuck into it...it looks fabulous

Debbie

Thank you so much Lucy. It's all ready for when I finish work. I absolutely can't wait to start it. You are so fab at what you do. Have a great day xx
