I'm sure that Ive seen a photo you've posted of this pattern, but worked in coastal colours, looking very much like a beach turning into breaking gentle waves and then the sea.....
I simply can't remember where I saw it.
Does this ring a bell, and if so could you point me in the right direction please?


I was excited to take delivery of the moorland wool pack yesterday. I would like to incorporate two other colours that remind me of the moors-a cream for the sheep and a grey for the stone walling.Any suggestions were these would fit best?

I have the wool and the crochet hook poised but i can not locate the pattern for the blanket with the list of colour to be used.

Wool Pack due to arrive tomorrow - am working a blanket for Grand-daughter ready for Uni.

What is the recommended chain for a single blanket for the Granny Stripe blanket?? Help needed, have not crochet for ages having turned my hand to Bobbin lace.


Hello Lucy, Your link to part 2 opens part 3 of the CAL. I'm trying to see the colour patterning for part 2. Can you email them to me? I'm very excited to try making this blanket for one of my daughters for Christmas.
Thanks so much!

Has anyone received an answer regarding a written pattern?


hi, just about to begin this project (late to the party as always) but is there a printable written pattern for it (i've tried copying and pasting the text on here but it won't). i really don't want to be tied to the computer. tia.

Hia Lucy, I love your Moorland Blanket and I am hoping to be able to make it. I am currently working the sample, in order to check what size hook to use. Could you please let me know if it is possible to print your instructions, as I am finding it a little awkward to keep scrolling through them on my mobile phone. Thanks! Carol

Bonjour! je vous connais depuis des années, je visite régulièrement votre blog qui me réconforte et m'apporte beaucoup de plaisir. Je viens de découvrir ce CAL avec un peu de retard, mais j'ai voulu vous rejoindre. Ma laine est commandée, je serai en retard sur vous, mais peu importe! Je me réjouis à l'avance ! Merci et félicitations pour ce que vous faites. Vous m'apportez beaucoup de soleil!

Eagerly awaiting part 4 today. I went for a 4.5 mm hook after my test square but now we're half way there I can see it's worked up shorter than it should, so I worked in 5 extra stripes during part 3. I took ages to decide where to add and which colours, such a responsibility as I didn't want to spoil Lucy's beautiful landscape. I hope I've done it justice. Without knowing at this stage what I'll need for the border, I bought 2 packs to make a double size so hopefully I'll have enough yarn to cover these extra stripes. Some colours have used up more than others. The blanket's getting heavy now but keeps my lap warm whilst working on it during this cold snap! Such a lovely quality feel to it thanks to Lucy's choice of stitch and yarn.
MIMI - try this link to get straight to the pattern on the internet: attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-wave-pattern.html - that's what comes up in the URL address box.

Hi, I am very experienced at crochet but i am now visually impaired and having to learn crochet "in the dark". I have made a ripple patern before but am now finiding it quite difficult.
My stich count is out every row. I have to use a system of markers. a lerge marker in my beginning and last stitch and smaller markers each repeat.
My question is i used to attach my new colour at the end of the previous row and chain up. I think this is where I am wrong now. Is it ok to start with a standing stitch so that I know for instance that i have 2 dc to start i will definitely be in the right place?
If anyone has tips i would be grateful. I ca mostly do anything but I work by feel and markers. My fingers have got very sensitive to decern which stitch it is and where it is so I am lucky there. I use text to speech and commit each row to memory. Aoart from that any advice would be wonderful. Please excuse any mistakes I can't read the screen I am trying to touch type! lol very out of practice. Kind regards Lorraine

Have come to the conclusion that I must've just made an error and moved one stitch over on a couple of stir o especially cos everything is lining up now and I'm feeling much happier with my work 😀

Hi, I am a relatively new crocheter having previously only managed granny squares. I have made a shawl which Went really well, but I am struggling to keep the stitches lined up on my blanket and am finding that every few rows I need to work a stitch into the loop at the base of the chain at the row beginning g to keep the pattern lined up. Is there something obvious that I am doing wrong? I am on my 11th stripe and really don't want to unravel it yet again, I love the pattern just wish I could keep it straight x


I am concerned about having enough yarn if I go for 351 chain size. I have 2 packs of the yarn pack. Will I have enough to make larger size?


Lucy, what did you have as your starting chain for the neat waves cushion you made? This is the bit that always flummoxes me. I'll be making a cushion rather than the moorland blanket and while I have the luxury of buying my cushion pad first (I'm going to take your previous advice and get a lovely feather one) I'm not sure how to calculate starting chain vs cushion pad size.
Thank you :) x


Good Morning, This is my first CAL and I am a beginning crocheter. Usually I jump right in, but this time I followed the tutorial and I'm glad I did. I'm having a little trouble figuring out if my stitches line up correctly row to row but it's getting easier as I practice. Thanks, Lucy for this beautiful pattern and for creating this group.

Audra Forbes

I bought the 2 packs for the larger blanket. Will it be enough for the 7ft/120cm blanket or should I do the 6ft one?


This is my first CAL and I'm so excited. I love, love, love the colors of this blanket and it's my first time with this pattern. I have been crocheting all weekend on it and now I don't want to go to work, I'd rather be home working on the blanket!

Veronica Dragon

Lucy, I am from Vermont, USA. I have been following your blog for a few years now. Just love your style and your ambition. Your work and colors are delightful. I ordered the yarn for this blanket, have started and love the way it is going. Thank you for your kindness and hard work.

Hello Lucy, Quick question,is it best to darn the tail ends in as I go or wait until I am finished.Thank you


I've done my practice samples (and decided on a 3.5mm hook, slightly reluctantly as I would rather work with a 4mm), and now done my foundation rows of the blanket...so good to have started! Loving the rhythm of the stitches. Need to stop and get on with some work, but don't want to... Thanks so much for the excellent instructions.

carmen attie

Thank You very much Lucy! have a happy new year!


Lucy, what a dream run you've given us - the instructions for working through the test piece were so clear - your talent for writing shines! So here I am in the middle of a warm Australian Summer (today is 35C) starting a crochet rug project. Hmm, should be in the pool! But it is just such a gorgeous rug - couldn't resist! Thanks, Lucy - love the colours.


Hi all, I used a 5mm hook to obtain the gauge. I have had a few false starts and had to unravel more than once. Inexperienced in crochet but getting the hang of it now. I have just completed row 8 and it is looking beautiful. It is getting addictive! Thank you Lucy for a great idea.


I used a 4mm. The 1st sample swatch I tried the 5mm and it was too long. I'm so glad I did the sample. I finished the first 4 colors today and weaved in the ends. I love th idea of doing it as you go along! Thank you so much for this beautiful pattern. More to be done tomorrow!!!

PS is there a way to go to the pattern without being on FB?
