Do you answer or comment on the messages you get? I have so many of the same questions or am wondering about so many of the comments, so I'd love to know if you answer - and how I could see your responses.


Have always loved this blanket. Are the colours you have listed above in the order you hAve used them?


But I just noticed this is from 3 years ago! Whoops


I would love to be included in this blanket journey

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe that you need to publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but generally folks don't discuss such topics. To the next! Kind regards!!


Hi Lucy! I’ve recommended your terrific article today on my blog and for that purpose used one of your pictures, I hope this is okay with you?


Have a great week-end!



How soft are those yarns? Do they make a lush blanket? Are they easy to care for? Sorry for the questions, but I have been looking for reviews on those yarns. I have LOADS of baby stuff to make for a friend's baby and Debbie's yarn looks so lush and soft, not to mention, the colors are fab! Thank you SOOO much for any answers you can give me. :D


Hiya! Do you own any writing or it is just a completely natural gift? Can't wait to hear from you.

This bag of yarn is going to transform into one a-MA-zing blanket, and I'm incredibly excited to be starting out on this new creative Blanket Journey.


Where can I find instructions for the ripple pattern?


Hello Lucy, hope all is good in the Attic. Could I get some yarn help please? I want to make a blanket for someone really special. I want some really snuggly wool and some really bright colours. I like your summer garden throw, the colours are amazing, but Rowan don't seem to have a yellow or orange in that range and I really want my blanket to be a rainbow. I was wondering about using the Baby cashmerino to make Granny squares. I know nothing about Yarn, really. If I did use this, how would I know which size hook to use and how much wool I would need to say make 150 granny squares? Also another project I am embarking on is to make a teacosy cover (not one that fits on the pot) the pattern calls for Rowan Cotton Glace or similar, I already have a good stash of handknit cotton could I use that instead? I have borrowed some crochet books from the library but I am more of a visual hands on learner, any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated
Many Thanks x

Just finished my first ripple blanket ever! Thank you so much! It's a gift for my new niece/nephew who is due tomorrow. Your patterns are fabulous and I'm really enjoying improving my crochet :)


lucy, i have a question for you. are the rows supposed to match up exactly? does the placement of the tr2tog have to be directly above the tr2tog of the previous row or will they be off a little bit?


I am so pleased with myself that I have just completed my first ever blanket -the granny stripe with the picot edge - my first crochet project! I am delighted with it and am now planning the ripple blanket to start in the next few days. Why have I never crocheted before? Your blog is so inspiring and I have a lot to learn about colours. What a happy winter its going to be!

Ok, so I am just finishing off Rosehip flower squares, combined with big and small versions of your flower squares...as in, still crocheting the last few squares - I still have to tackle the joining process! BUT...I nEEd to start your ripple along. I have so many other projects on the go, may as well add another. A quick question about your rows. It looks like you have 3 row widths. Widest: 2x treble crochet rows; middle: 1x treble crochet row; narrow: double crochet? (UK terms). Could you clarify for me please? I love your variegated row widths and would like to go rippling in a similar manner.

I've been thinking about doing a ripple blanket for a while now and would love to join in with you guys. I enjoyed reading your post, thanks for sharing. Deb xxxx


Hi there, just in love with the color combination so far on what you have rippled. i am trying to get your exact wool colors and live in Australia. I am finding it difficult. I can get 12 of the colors from a UK website but still can't get 5 of the colors, particularly any orange. Could you give a contact for your local store - email or website? I would be happy to purchase direct from them :). Thanks for your help.


Do you support Burnley FC by any chance? That is what the claret and blue at the beginning of your blanket screamed at me!


I loved reading this post, colour is such a personal thing and it's really interesting to learn how you make your selections. I think the blanket looks scrumptious - my heart was always with Granny Stripes, but I do love those skinny ripples. I'm sorely tempted to do a seaside ripple, as the seaside granny worked so well, but will just enjoy watching every one elses progress. Thank you!

Vanessa :P

This totally makes me want to ripple along!


I will be rippling along with you too! I am very excited about my ripples and will be sharing updates also! Happy rippling! :)


Hang on a minute - 30 balls of wool - that yarn is £4.95 per ball in Create - thats £148.50 for a blanket! - I wouldn't even spend that much on yarn for a garment let alone for a blanket!!


I started a ripple blanket for our double bed in June but as it got bigger I decided to leave it until the weather got cooler as I was sweating doing it lol - I certainly feel that now's the time to finish it. Only about a quarter to do. I look forward to following your progress.


Lucy I love posts like these where you aort of deconstruct the blanket making process - I'm a very novice hooker and really don't have much confidence when it comes to choosing colours so info like this is really helpful, thank you. I LOVE LOVE the interlocking ripples, they look brilliant! Will have to pinch this idea, once I've finished my vintage stripe baby blanket which also very much inspired by you! :)


Love the way the colours sing out and also the variable width of the stripes. I am nearly finished with my first ripple blanket for my daughter - inspired by your blog at attic24. The Debbie Bliss wool is lovely to work with and looks fab too. Look forward to watching your new project grow - its got off to a brilliant start!
