Hi Lucy,
I’m enjoying crocheting a meadow blanket but I’m not sure what happens after row 45 - can you advise please.
Best wishes


I love your blankets, I’ve just finished my first ‘cosy’. Now I want to make one for my snug. What is your most pastel blanket, blues, greys, pinks,


Love your pictures - so colourful
I love making blankets too and have a blog CAL- a very simple one to crochet.

Debra Moldenhauer

I absolutely love your colour choices.

And am mad about making blankets too although in South Africa it is too hot to use them most of the time but they make wonderful decor too.

Your blankets are so beautiful and such an inspiration, I am new to crochet, have all the squares made to a Harmony blanket, a Granny stripe sunny kit waiting to make, now a certain someone ha sgot me into sock making! I've almost finished my first one - thanks to you. Keep up the good work and I cannot wait for the next blanket design.


I just had a look at your Blanket Fest (again) and my favourite one still is your first blanket, the Granny Square Blanket finished 2008. Did you everr write a pattern for the square with the cute central flower? Or will you do it?? I would love it!! ;-)


I live in the Netherlands and a acquaintance of my made a blanket inspired by your hexagon pattern. And now she got me making one too. I love it. Especially looking for colours that match for every hexagon. Its great to do.
Thank you for sharing.

Baby Blankets

OMG these are sooo cute!!! My sister is having a baby in August and these would be PERFECT!!

Mary Ellen Goetz

you have every right to be so proud of your creations! you have the gift of a fabulous eye for color..and the patterns look like a party waiting to happen! Thank you for sharing!


These are really beautiful! I've crocheted blankets, but the hardest thing is to get the ends to stay tucked in after washing.. So disappointing to see them coming undone! Any ideas?

What a fabulous squishy pile! There's something so lovely about snuggling into a homemade blanket, something that you just don't get with a bought one. Making squares is a brilliant way to pass the time whilst waiting to pick children up, in waiting rooms, at after-school clubs etc so there's really no excuse for us all not to have such a squishy pile! :-) xx

Wendy Rance

Yum Yum Yum. Like you Lucy, we learnt to crochet with a computer in front of us. Only difference was that we were following your tutorials. Thank you so much for sharing. I said we, myself and my son! He made your birds first and now toys for friends and relations, so on his behalf thank you again. Can't wait for the next ta da :)

Janny Bijlstra

Beautifull blankets!


They are FAB! I have been able to crochet for years and years but have never finished a blanket. Other things yes, but not a blanket. I have an overwhelming need to go out and buy wool!

Cristina Arguello

Kim McCulley

Gorgeous!! Stunning!! I had absolutely NO idea you so recently began the craft of crocheting. Amazing and so encouraging. Thank you for sharing. Your color palette males me feel so cheery.


I'm so glad I found your blog! I had repinned your "pile of blankets" because I thought it was so pretty but got all sad when I realised the pin led nowhere! I've now repinned so people can find your blog! I looove your choice of colours! Such gorgeous blankets! All those types of blankets always remind me of my grandma ♥

Those blanket are really good looking and colorful which reminds me of some scarp in Finland where i notice that they are using a lot of simple scarp normal color which still make them look good specially those woman.

Chery TX
