Hello Lucy do you have a popcorn pattern for a blanket.warm wishes Julie Australia 🦘🌏🌸

Rhi Davies

To those asking how many for starting chain I think Lucy has done 9 repeats of her neat ripple. So I'm guessing it's (14 * 9) + 3 = 129 cast on.


How many chain to start this blanket please

Karen Lowry

You mentioned looking out toward Bolton Abbey.
My 3rd great grandfather was born and christened at Bolton Abbey in 1799. I’ve always wanted to come to UK to see where my ancestors lived.

I enjoy reading your posts.

Hi Lucy
I have been looking for the perfect blanket to crochet for my first grandchild, due on Christmas eve, and I think the Baby Ripple is the one! I just love the colours.
It would be perfect as I have, over the years, completed several of your blankets and loved them and even sent one over to France for my son Fraser (soon to be Dad).
Is the pattern available anywhere or could you send me some guidance to help?
Many thanks

Hi Lucy
I would dearly love to make this as a baby blanket. Is there any way you could let me have the pattern for your baby blanket asap - I need to get cracking and get it made as a gift.

Much appreciated.

Hi Lucy, could you please tell me what yarn you used in your baby ripple blanket, what colours, what hook size and how many stitches ? Much appreciated,
Love your work, I am doing the Sweet Pea Posy at the moment.



Hi Lucy, sorry to be a pain but could you explain to me how to do this or direct me to where I can find out. Desperately want to replicate the pattern for a wee bearn due in August. May I also take this chance to say what an inspiration you are to me and that I’m a huge fan!!
Thanks H x

I have just bought the coast ripple blanket yarn pack as I just love the colours! Would you have any advice on how to adapt the pattern to a baby blanket? I was hoping to make it as a gift for a new baby in the family, along with some accessories with the left over yarn...So excited!

I've just come across thise page, and was wondering what ply yarn, what size hook amd how many starting chains you used for this gorgeous, precious blanket ❤



Thank you Lucy for you quick response to my query about needle size and wool, I'll be ordering the wool from the site x


Hi, I've been practising the ripple and am ready now to make my first attempt the real thing. Please can you tell me which wool and hook I should use. Many thanks


Hi, I'm federica and I'm writing to you from Italy.
I made your blanket for my first granddaughter, but I changed color at every turn and, surprise, the blanket has two different sides!
has been a great success, thank you!


Hi Lucy, I have been searching the internet for a crochet baby blanket for my first blanket project and came across your website today. I have been entranced alllll day, my one day off, enjoying and indulging in your most sumptuous use of colour combinations and creative projects. You have a wonderful sense of colour, a true artist. With great difficulty I have stuck to my initial project (first) and plan to make the baby ripple blanket. Are you able to share the pattern and hook size? I must also congratulate you on your detailed instructions for this ripple blanket with very helpful photos, the best that I have found on the internet and thats a lot of looking!! You have inspired me to be adventurous and creative, thank you.


Hi Lucy,

Love the baby blanket. which yarn and hook did you use and how much yearn and how many chain stitches did you start with?

Many Thanks

Charmaine Rimmer

Hello Lucy as you can see I am back at your wonderful attic24, it is always like walking into Alladins Cave to me anyway. I am still crocheting for charity and as the Straight rows granny st blanket came out so well as well as my attermpt at the cupcake blanket pattern, still got a bit to do. I have been wanting to learn to so the Ripple stitch and to make a blanket and lo and behold there it is one your site. I have done the practise swatch a few times and although I am no expert I've got it after a few rows. So tomorrow I start the real thing, I just know I am going to enjoy following your tutorials once again. So a huge thank you for sharing your amazing talent with us I am so sure there are many of your followers who would agree with me. I wish you and your family a really happy Xmas and a really prosperous and happy New Year.
