Hi, Lucy, a friend just passed me this URL because she knows I love to crochet ... and I have so many yarn bits and bobs that I'd love to use on a version of this blanket! Only thing is, I can figure it all out EXCEPT for the little fiddly flowers. Did I miss your pattern/instructions for them?

I LOVE everything I've seen on your blog so far and will now be checking it on a daily basis!

Cheers from Texas --

What a fun outcome of a busy project! I want to make one too. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Lucy,

This blanket is amazing! Thank you for sharing its story with us. I am going to make one of my own, but I can't seem to find the pattern for the sweet flowers here on your blog. Would you be willing to share it with us? I'd love to have it.

Your blog makes me happy!


Beautiful as are all your blankets. But this is the best. Are you going to do a pattern for it? At least for the flowers, please???? Heck I'll
buy the pattern from you just contact me please. I love this blanket have just have to make it. Please, please please share the pattern for the flowers. Why don't you do a book? So many people would buy it.
Thanks for brightening my days

Hi, Lucy. i would just like to thank you so so much for your wonderful blog. It has been a life saver for me. I've been suffering from post natal depression for the second time, following the birth of my 2nd son. I find crochet and in particular you blogs, projects and tutorials a real inspiration and it has seriously helped me through some really bad days, so thanks for that. Now for the begging part, i really really love this pattern (sweet flower granny pattern) and was hoping you would share it with me. I can do granny squares, but i really love the little flower in the centre. Many thanks, Maoliosa.


Hi Lucy
Can I just say how neat your work is and I don't seem to be able to replicate it. More practice needed me thinks.

I love all your wonderful blankets and cushions. I am certainly planning to edge all my blankets in future as it truly makes a difference.
Looking forward to checking out more of your projects and seeing your TA DAH moments.


Please is there a pattern for this? I can't find it anywhere & can't figure out the sweet little flowers & leaves. I want to make this so bad


I am making a flower field afgan for a friend's little grand daughter, and was looking for flowers to attach to the squares. Yours are adorable, but you don't say how to make them! Rats!


Great blanket. So happy looking. c x PS I have the same socks as you....pic 6. Primark?)

Found you blog today and am amazed at the combination of colors! Just beautiful. I've been crocheting for going on 50 years and it never ceases to amaze me how many different patterns and color combinations crocheters come up with. Please post or direct me to the pattern for this lovely throw.



You are such an inspiring lady I must say I just started my granny blanket........from Pakistan

It is a lovely work of soft, pretty comfort. The style is so sweet, your colors were lovely and putting it together was wonderful, so much to look at. Thank you for showing it to us.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blanket! I am now trying to make one myself. I am really new at this crochet thing, so I think it would take me a while to finish it. :)
I wanted to ask you if you attached the squares as you were going or what method did you use to attach them?
I love your entire blog! you are so creative!




Lucy what are your chosen colors ????

Sandra Camilleri

Very nice blanket.
i question the little flowers and leaves in the centre of the squares are they done seperately and then sewed afterwards or sone as you go along?
i would like to do a blanket like this. I think it is amazing. Prosit! as we say in Maltese.


just discovered your blog and I'm absolutely in love with this blanket. the colors are beautiful and the i'm jealous you can do something so random. (i get super OCD about colors.)


that is so lovely. well done


I love the Sweet Flower Granny Blanket. Any chance of getting the pattern for the granny square? I'm about to make a blanket for my daughter who is off to Uni in Australia and this pattern would be perfect.

Well, I just finished all my squares & am in the process of putting them all together!! I am soooo anxious to complete this afghan that I was tempted to call in sick to work just to stay home & finish it!!! My bad! I have never liked changing colors & dealing with all those ends to weave in but you've brought me back from the dark side, Lucy. I can't wait to start another of your projects!! I have so enjoyed your blog these past months & will be a devoted fan for as long as you're sharing your colorful life!


Amaaaaazing, i wanna do that someday
Congratulation and good Job :*

Liz Ashton

Lovely, lovely lovely! Just found your blog via Craftgawker, but I think I've wandered this way before. Going to have a hunt around your archive for new ideas. It's lovely to see the work of a fellow (obsessive) crocheter!
