I think this is beautiful, would love to do one myself. I have a lot of "left overs" in my basket.

Very pretty! Neck warmer and you too!!
Many greetings from Prague!

Pam Richardson

Love the colours and a great idea too!


Hi Lucy!
Really love this one!
I was planning to make this one, but only use 10 colours instead of 12. Do you think I will have enough yarn to make this pattern if I only order 10 of the James C. Brett Cotton On?


Just lovely! I love the colors and the pattern..well done! Thanks for sharing Lucy!!

Deluxe! And you look so pretty in it! A great way to use my Madelintosh leftover vintage.


What a lovely blog... so kind to see you.

I have built up a bit of coloured stash lately buying magazine yarn sets people have not used from ebay. This is a perfect project for me and my beginners class. Thanks for sharing. Finished my skirt today. Jo



Today I received a bright pink plastic envelope; inside beautifully wrapped in spring green tissue paper was... Yes, my lovely, lovely Yarndale bag.

Perfect for toting around my knit and natter gear. The ladies will be sooo green next week. :-)

Can't wait for the main event!


Fabulous! I am granny squaring a blanket at the moment using Lucy colours and getting near The Edge. Did you upload Spot-On Edging tutorial mentioned in your Granny Patchwork Ta-dah? I can't quite work out how to achieve it without a bit of help! Can't see it in the side bar, but wondering if it is in a blog post anywhere I could find it.


Very cute neck warmer! And your hair looks so nice :)


It's very nice!

Hi Lucy. Love your bright neck warmer and it is easy. Love the saying Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. I love all your cheerful bright work. Meme

Beautiful! Oh, and the neck warmer too! :0


The colours really suit you. Thanks for sharing. I do like to have something scarfy around my neck - keeps me cosy warm!

Sandra (Cherry Heart)

Beautiful! I love the colours and it looks nice and cozy too. Great idea to use dc's in the pattern, it works really well.

That is perfect! I think I need one, too, straight away. Off to the stash...

Meanwhile, your hair looks fab! Great mug shots, all. :)


Fun....still learning. Still learning...one day, I will have a finished product! Ha ---or so I hope.


I wasn't waiting and got my neck warmer ready yesterday!! Thank you so much for the pattern....it will be so lovely to wear it in a windy and rainy dog walk today here in Finland. I had a hard time to take it off when I went to bed last night already. Let's see, if it comes off today after the walk. Have a nice week and let the sun shine in your part of the world today :D


Thank-you for always sharing your patterns and ideas. A great way to use my ever-growing stash.

Beautiful cowl!!! I have a couple that my mom made for me...they get worn nearly every day; New England weather is still a bit nippy, and the cowls are perfect for keeping me cozy. You've inspired to learn to crochet my own.

Love it! Here we call it a snood. I'm trying to knit one for myself at the moment. Enjoy the cosiness! (PS - you could seriously sell these to lazies who can't/don't have a crafty bone in the bod!)


This is a lovely design. I had a bit of a laugh at some of the styles on your link to cowls.The loose ones look a bit too much like a turkey wattle/mega double chin if you know what I mean- and that's the last thing that women of a certain age (read "any")needs! I like how you have included stripes that match the jacket/coat you are likely to wear it with- I will remember that when choosing my colours.
Thanks Lucy.
