I love this blanket and it has given me inspiration to start a blanket for Project Linus from my evergrowing stash/leftovers! Love that elephant too. X

Melissa Mendoza

What size hook was used for this pattern please?

Geena johnson

If you all have any scrap yarn to give away send to me at 274 Rey street San Francisco California 94134

Attic24 beautiful and bright I love it all

Ronel Elliott

Made this previously and gave to a friend for her birthday. I love it, think I'm going to make another one during our lockdown period. Love your site.

I have mostly Aran/worsted-weight yarn in my stash, so I expect I'd probably end up with a larger blanket (or need fewer squares to have enough for a similar-size blanket) using that and an appropriate-size hook (maybe a 6mm/J hook?). I'm guessing you probably used a 4mm hook with the Stylecraft Special DK. Lovely wide border! I usually go for a "granny round" or two, or at most 4 rounds of half double crochet (UK half treble crochet), but that's mostly because I'm usually tired and impatient to be done by the time I get to joining squares and adding a border.

I made it!!! Chose 9 bright colours of same wool type. It looks fabulous. I love your instructions. Sometimes I understand the step-by-step pictures, sometimes I suddenly get it from the written out pattern. Your detail is so so helpful.
I red a rest before I move onto the border now.

vanessa webster

can you tell me how many sts do i put on for 6inch square please


Love your amazing patterns 💓.Are your stitch term UK or US ? I never made a granny square blanket you inspired me to make one.🌞

 Joan Musgjerd

I was wondering what size crochet needle you need

Caroline E. Gillott

where is the "spot on edging" pattern?


I am looking to start an ‘Elmer’ style blanket project for my Elmer obsessed 2 year old and stumbled across your post. Absolutely perfect! Thank you so much for the inspiration 💕


I just came across this today after a failed attempt at making a gift for a dear friend who is going to have to get an IOU for Christmas. This I know I could do. What weight was the weight of the yarn you made this with?

Sarah darcy

Please can you do a tutorial on this granny square pattern. I have been having a go but am dyslexic which is why your visual tutorials are fab but can’t figure out this pattern but would love to make this blanket as my first blanket ever. Thanks in hopeful advance

Victoria Mier

I love these granny squares, better than the usual ones - thank you for the pattern! I think I'm going to make an Elmer blanket when I've finished the Moorland CAL. (Six colours and the border to go!) Maybe using the cosy stripe yarn pack, I love those colours.

You can learn to crochet - from tutorials right here on Lucy's site. There are many others, too.
One is Dedri Uys (www.lookatwhatimade.net) and video tutorials on Moogly and other sites as well. Just type Learn Crochet in Google search and you'll find more than you need.
I learned so much from Lucy. In fact, I hadn't picked up a hook for more than 25 years and suddenly wanted to do it again. I found Lucy's site first - and my first project here was Lucy's Blooming Pillow. (you'll find it listed in sidebar) - following Lucy, I had no problem - and I STILL LOVE my Blooming Pillow!
Thank you, thank you, Lucy! I love you. If I ever get back to England, I'm going to make it a point to visit the Attic 24 Studio!

I want to start a new granny blanket and like the autumn brown, red, yellow, orange colours but can't find a pattern or chart to say how many balls I need. I like the one by the fire on the sofa in your sitting room.
Love your work.

Hi Lucy,
Have you written a pattern for this blanket? I would love to have a go at it and could probably take a guess at most of the colours but I can't see the dark colours properly. (Midnight and emperor). I would love a bit of help if you are fee to do so.
Many thanks.

Kathleen Johnson

do you sell any of your creations or do you custom make any?

ps love your work, great colors.

Maggie Berry

I'm sure I saw a lovely cream and light brown or fawn, crochet rug on one of your pages, have not been able to find it since. I think it was on display in a room. I would like to at some stage crochet a cream rug with just a touch of beige or fawn. Love your site, lots of great ideas.

Beverly Lemoine

So, I think I understand, but do I "join as you go" in round 5 of the squares?

Granny Square


Is there a bundle pack available in your shop for this pattern? I would love to be able to get the right yarn/colours!


Hi Lucy
Have just completed blanket and added bobble edging only crocheted edging before. Thanks for inspiration. Working with colours brightened up winter. Started out as stash busting but then bought more colours!
Next project CAL

Susanna Finch

Dear Lucy

When you have a moment I would prefer to do the border fir this blanket on the stripes blanket. Only got to colour no. 7 so no rush. When you have a moment perhaps you could send to me. Many thanks.

Susanna Finch

Love it Lucy but hate joining all the squares together. Do you think I could just carry on round the squares and make them bigger so that there are not so many to join together?
