I’m just putting all the squares together but they seem to be different in your picture. Am I going wrong somewhere?

Dear Lucy,
Thank you so much for your very clear instructions to make the Harmony Blanket. I made a small one for a children's bed. Wished I could show you my pictures: I made it of Garnstudio Drops Merino Extra Fine. Pure Merino wool and rather heavy. So good you warned for 'the pesky little ends'! I worked them away at once and oh, that was a relief!! Using the same colours as you did was a bit a puzzle but I managed by staying very close to your colours. It was a big project, but it turned out to be beautiful at the end. And thanks to baby Oliver, who waited for me to finish the blanket: the border was completed at the day of his birth! Thank you for the inspiration! Very kind regards from Anke, The Netherlands

I am a beginner, as soon as I do a row of the triple crochet it makes my project go all frilly! I am trying to make a baby blanket! What am I doing wrong? Help.


Hi Lucy,
I want you to know that I finished my Harmony blanket the day after I came to Yarndale and saw you there. (Lovely show.) I'm so delighted with my finished product. Thank you for such precise instructions; they are a joy to follow and even simply look at. Wonderful to know that everything works out so precisely. I followed your pattern right until the end, and then went off piste with a row of slip stitch in aster! It feels so right for me. Many complements, especially over the beautiful colour combination - such very clever choices. I'm looking forward to your Weekend Bag tutorial. Will help make a dent in the copious amounts of yarn I have left over from 5 different blankets. Thank you for being so encouraging.


Hi Lucy,
I'm reiterating Amie NZ's post of 4 Jan 2016, by coincidence (or perhaps not) I'm at exactly the same stage as Amie is in joining the squares. I had already noticed that the order of the squares in the table supplied with the Harmony pack started with your strip 2 and for the next 4 strips happily agreed with each other. Now at the top of strip 5 there is deviation and I'm thrown into uncertainty! You are usually so verbal about your journey from conception to ta-dah and I've scoured your notes to no avail. Do I follow the table or your photo or - when I have the time and space - lay them all out and decide what's best. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime a quick comment to you is all I can do. I've been so excited about this blanket since I first saw your ideas for it, and now eager to complete it. Many thanks for all you do.

I am in the process of making this blanket in my own colours. Choosing and arranging orders is very challenging but so enjoyable too (I wouldn't want to be doing it for thousands of people the way you do - it makes me appreciate that it's probably quite stressful!) I have started my squares - absolutely love them - and have suddenly realised that the colour I was going to use to join is too strong, it would over power the squares. Then I realised that your Parmalat violet is a subtle colour so I am trying for the same. I must buy you some more coffee, I learn so much from you huge thanks.

Hi Lucy, I bought your Harmony Blanket pack in October, have made the 126 Squares and I'm onto the 5th strip of joining. I've been following the table from my printed pattern (which is the same as the table on your blog tutorial), but my blanket is turning out differently to yours. From the photos above your completed blanket doesn't appear to have the squares in the same order as the table. Am I reading the pattern/tutorial wrong?

Judy Broughton

Hi Lucy, I've just finished my Harmony blanket, wonderful pattern and I loved making it. I've just started the coast ripple blanket. Thanks for all the clever patterns.


Absolutely gorgeous, Lucy. You are a clever cookie!


These are the colours of my new living room rug. I've never bought wool for a blanket, I've only ever made them from scraps (apart from a baby blanket of course) I would love to make this to match our new décor. I just need to finish a few projects then I'm giving it a go - or maybe a version. Anyway, looks beautiful and I love it.


I love the colours you have used. So comforting!


Lovely as ever Lucy - any chance of a pattern for the little fishy on your scissors?


Oh how lovely! I've admired your blankets since I learnt to crochet earlier this year, though I've not made one yet. But you're so generous in sharing the hows as well. Having falling in love with this craft, I long to create my own beauties and really appreciate the insight.


Another stunning blanket Lucy! So beautiful. Thank you for putting so much work into your detailed tutorials and sharing them so freely with us. They are truly a gift. And I love reading (and seeing) how you put your colors together, from inspiration to testing them out to finished blanket. Your blog is so informative, so beautiful, and so inspiring. You are a huge part of people re-discovering the craft of crochet, and that is a wonderful thing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

P.S., couldn't agree more about darning in the ends as you go.


I do not know if I can say other words that we have already said in all your posts... Lucy is all so beautiful ... this new blanket! you have collection of crochet blankets most beautiful in the world! thanks for so many colors that you give us in every new post! are a great source of inspiration! hope you have a nice day!

Your blanket is absolutely stunning! It reminds me of a Spring field bursting with softly blooming pastel blossoms!


Thank you for this gorgeous pattern I have decided on slightly less colours to make the harmony blanket for my daughter for her 1st birthday it has set my organisation old into over drive but I love it can't wait to see how it turns out x


Just received my pack can't wait to get started. :-D


Just gorgeous

Ankita Vj

This is sooo lovely....like your other creations I really dream to some day make this one...


oh. my. goodness. gorgeous. thank you soon much for being here!


Hi Lucy, everyone! I recieved my Harmony pack yesterday and couldn't believe what a speedy delivery it was! Well I started winding that yarn into cakes with thAt neat yarn winder last night which by the way really helps and did my first trail square for size this morning. Bingo!! Right at 10cm. Sigh, relief.... So I sit here this morning amidst all the colorful cakes and hoping to get some more squares done today. Wonder how long it will take me to finish this blankie....it will be worth it at the end. Have a great day!

Beautiful Lucy. For me it is the grey joining that does it. A perfect choice. Yet another blanket to cuddle up underneath... One can never have to many. :)

Lynda M Otvos

Again, an amazing Ta-Da Moment !~! Thoroughly Magnificent, Lucy.


Love the blanket and all your blankets in your pictures. Such a warm and welcoming couch, chair and home. Really, the colours really work together. Great job and thanks for sharing your lovely part of the world with us.
