About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home.

My Aunt is 78 and for years she has wanted to make a wavey blanket. She can't read a pattern so your very helpful diagrams are just the thing.


Thank you for your first class tutorial, it makes it virtually impossible to go wrong! I've just made a baby blanket in bright rainbow colours using the pattern and it's turned out brilliantly. I've taught myself to crochet from tutorials on Pinterest, and find yours by far the clearest to follow. I'm now addicted to making baby blankets in all sorts of gorgeous colour combinations from the endless Stylecraft range 😃😃

Hi Lucy,
I am a beginner, am having trouble working out what size needle and ply wool you used for the wave blanket. Thinking of using at least DK.how many stitches across would you recommend, and how much wool.

Thank you Brenda.

Maureen Butterfield

Can you advise me on the border please?


Hi Lucy, just want to say THANK YOU!!!!! I have been trying to master this stitch from other blogs and videos, but yours is the BEST and the EASIEST to follow. Can't wait to use it make to a blanket or afghan. Keep up the good work and again thank you!!!!!


Thanks for your reply Candace, I'll look up that tutorial. You might have saved me from a big disaster!


Wendy, you don't want to snip your ends off at the knot, it will come undone, especially so with acrylic yarns. After you tie the knot you need to leave enough yarn for a tail to weave through. Lucy shows how to weave in the yarn tails in the Ripple Blanket Know-How Tutorial.


I'm a Crochet beginner so forgive me if this is a silly question, but what do you do with the ends of the knotted yarn when you change colours? Do you just snip them off close to the knot? I'm a bit worried the knot will come undone.

The pattern is easy to understand, but how much yarn would I have to buy to make this blanket and also what size hook do I use???


Thank you so much for this amazing pattern and the easy-to-follow instructions!


Dear Lucy I would like to buy the blue stylecraft selection pack to
Make the illustrated blue ripple blanket - can you tell me how many chains to start with and the sequence of colours as illustrated for that pack of wool
Thank you AMALIA


Thank you very much for your wonderful tutorial, everything is quite clear and very easy to crochet. But could you please tell how to crochet this pattern in a circle if I have to form a cone with extension? Have you ever made this? :)
I am a beginner crocheter and I am trying to figure out how to make a mermaid tail blanket for my daughter using this pattern. Thank you very much in advance for your reply!


Thank you so much for this! I have been scouring the internet for a simple ripple pattern and everything is so confusing. No one wants to explain what it is you do at the end of the second row with the last stitches. They all say "this part is tricky" or "you have to be sure to get this right or your count will be off" and then they quickly go past it and I'm left wondering what just happened! : ) Your tutorial made it plain and obvious to me and I've started my first ripple lapghan. I hope to do this first one as a practice and then give them as gifts this Christmas. Thank you so much for this!
All of your work is beautiful, I'm super jealous. haha

Hi what is the best yarn and hook to use for this ripple pattern?

bethannie thomas

Im fairly new to crochet and can follow the pattern, but I don't know how to stitch each part together. Do you have any advice for this?




Ohmygawd, thank you!!! I think I finally get it!!! I have to try again! I've tried so many times and just couldn't get it to work, but I can see now something I missed from everyone else's tutorials and patterns and videos :P The only other thing I can't figure out is how many chains to start with for different sizes of blanket. I tried making a (bad)sample before and measuring, and still ended up with too many chains one time and too few chains a few other times :/ lol
Whatever though. THANK YOU!!!! <3

Vicki - On the right side of Lucy's blog there is a section called Ta-dah Moments. Click on Ripples (Cottage) and then scroll down and you will find the list of the color sequence. Happy hooking!

Vicki North

Hi - I have bought the pack and pattern from wool warehouse and am half way through but have lost the pattern. Would you be able to tell me the rest of the colour list? I've just done row 38 which was lavender.


Is this available on wool warehouse with pattern and wool?

Nichola Brown

Hi Lucy

I am trying the neat weave blanket. I have done 31 chains but can't get my hook through 2 loops to start the trebs. Does this matter?

Please can you help?

I just love learning from your easy to follow patterns.

Thank you,



Hi.. Could you give the written tutorial of 3-5 years old baby's sweater using this pattern please???? I follow up the pattern but can't make a sweater of my baby and mine also...

Sonja Gale

sorry that was meant to be multiples of 12 plus 3 not 2!

Sonja Gale

I have been struggling with this pattern, my sample pieces come out fine but I cannot seem to end up with the right number of trebles at the end, my last 2 tr2tog always end up with only 2 stitches left to work into. I have searched youtube for advice on getting this pattern right, but everyone else seems to use multiples of 12 plus 2 instead of multiples of 14. I was wondering if this makes a difference. I don't know if it's my counting on the foundation chain that's wrong or something I'm not doing quite right in the rows that follow. Probably the first! Any tips from anyone about recounting your foundation chains accurately? My eyes seems to blur the chains together and I lose count constantly. Please help, someone! I bought the cottage pack to do this pattern with, I am very determined to get it right but it's quite frustrating right now!


Does the Wool Warerhouse sell a color pack for this blanket like in the picture?
