Hi, sorry one more question, on a double size afghan, using the Stylcraft acrylic that you do, and nine colors, how many skeins of each yarn should I order? i would like to do a border as well. thank you so much for your time.

I love this pattern. Thanks so much for sharing your experience.

Wow, what a wonderful blanket. I'm new to crochet and to ripples, but inspired by your blog, I've just started a ripple baby blanket. I've just used 5 colours and thicker ripples, but it's already looking good. Thanks for sharing your ideas and know-how.


In love with the colors!!! & the pattern!!

I found your blog a couple of months ago after being inspired to take up crochet again after a few years break. I decided to have a go at your ripple pattern to make a blanket for my 2nd baby, due at Easter, and I've just finished it today. I'm SO pleased with it. The colours, the pattern, the way the edging just frames it beautifully. I can't wait to snuggle baby 'Wiggles' in all those lovely wiggles! Thank you for your patterns and tutorials, and the lovely peeks into your colourful home!


It's so absolutely gorgeous! I came across your first ripple blanket yesterday while looking for patterns. All of your creations are amazing, but this has to be my favorite. Love all the colors in this, especially the green and pink up there.

I am satisfied to understand that you are all most there.....Really, I have got an essential data which I wouldn't realise. But now, I have understand about you so, I am cooperative to you. Thanks!


Absolutely stunning! So glad I found your blog tonight! I am not a very skilled crocheter even though I learned years ago. I could not find the time I wanted. But now I have come back to it for past 5 yrs and you have given me the confidence I needed to make this. Cannot thank you enough! So so wonderful, thank you!


The colors you chose are wonderful! I want to try this for my first blanket. Do you have the color order posted anywhere, and the hook size? Hope I can make something as gorgeous and inviting as yours....well, almost!!!


I've found the page with the colour shades; I love this ripple and want to place an order. Is two balls of each colour enough? Love your blog :-)

hi there,do you have the pattern for the zigzag rug, the one you put the little squares into, i would love to try it. thanks

So beautiful ! It's inspiring ... After finding yours and a sunny day here last Saturday I got inspired again to go back and finish mine ...


It's beautiful! You have inspired me to start my own with some Stylecraft, and I am about 15 colours in. The pattern is so simple I can even do it while watching Borgen! But the interplay of colours is so interesting that I can't wait to start a new one. It's such fun!


So I happened upon your blog the other night and it was perfect timing as I planned to finish up my own ripple blanket the next day! I loved your edging and was inspired to do mine similarly. I used a different ripple pattern for mine, and a much different color scheme. I also took over a year to complete mine, beginning just after Christmas 2011. So I suppose I was unintentionally rippling along with you. In any case your blanket is marvelous and makes me want to start another blanket already! I did finish mine the other day, if you want to see pictures there are some on my blog if you click on my name :)

It's beautiful!
Parabéns, linda colcha.


Lucy, I read an entry where you once compared crochet to therapy (which I wholeheartedly agree with). I had always wondered about your love of ripples versus so many other patterns to display your beautiful, cheery color schemes, so I decided to embark on a ripple journey of my own. I have to tell you, I have found the rippled path to be one that a truly needed to travel on, and was precisely the therapy I have been seeking. Thank you so much for sharing that wisdom and insight with a stranger who found what she was looking for in it ;)


I love this blanket!! I can't wait to start my own ripple blanket- just the difficult but enjoyable decision of choosing the colour scheme!

I'm showing my progress on my blog - I hope I don't get disheartened with such a big project- I do lie to bite off more than I can chew! Your pattern directions will help!


Rachel Stone

Dear Lucy, my wool shop introduced me to your blog and I have enjoyed every article, archived article, finished product etc etc since! your ethos towards life and your finished products are an inspiration - genuinely!

I have been crocheting for 2 weeks and could do with a few tips from someone with so much experience such as yourself. Is there any way of making contact with you to ask for some help??

Don Robins

I really enjoy viewing your blog. The items you make are wonderful to look at, and I find myself wanting to make all the things I see. One pattern I have been struggling with is the Flower granny blanket. I cant't figure how to make the little flowers and the four leaves. I wuld appreciate informations on how i may get the pattern. thank you DJRobins, USA

Heather Wolowik

Simply beautiful. I knit/crochet with a group of ladies at church and we make prayer shawls for shut ins. I think this is a great pattern to try out for those (though perhaps a bit smaller). Great work!

Sherrie Rheault

Gorgeous blanket. I'm so going to make one. I would love to know your color sequence please, please. I'm such a fan of,your blog!!!


Oh well asking about how much it actually cost to make a knit blanket is just RUDE! Haha I love that. The price of my yarn and the time is a dirty dark secret of mine. For the record I really wish I could either afford Debbie Bliss Cashmerino that you recommend or find something similar that's at least semi-affordable and doesn't involve me trolling 2 different stores with coupons daily to make it affordable.
