Hi! I was wondering if there was a pattern for crocheting the basket that's pictured above?

Carla Collett

I need some help, I'm starting the sunny log cabin blanket and I have a G/6 4.25mm hook and a F/5 3.75 mm hook, the pattern calls for a 4mm hook which I don't have, my tension is not tight nor loose so I don't want to use the wrong hook size because I don't want the measurements of the squares to come out wrong especially after cutting the yarn to change colors because of the limited yarn (it would take 2 weeks to get another yarn pack cause I live in the us) so do I use my G hook or my F hook?


All 16 granny's done after receiving the wool package yesterday, so excited for tomorrow now :)


Super excited to join this CAL! Wool Warehouse ships very quickly to the US: I had the bag full of delightful color within a week.


Hi Lucy. I love those colours and would really like to have a go at the granny stripe. When I've done a blanket before where I start at the bottom and keep going to the end (ie not in squares) then I find that the end is always wider than the beginning. Please have you any tips to help avoid that problem? Thank you : )


16 sunny squares completed and eagerly awaiting the next stage ! Love your blog Lucy - inspired me to crochet again in January this year. My granny taught me 40 years ago. Have made 3 ripple blankets (one for me and 2 for friends) a cosy blanket and an African flower hexagon blanket so far this year. My gran would be very proud!! Thank you Lucy xx

Lucy,just wanted to tell you and all your friends what great and quick service the wool warehouse has. I am in Canada ordered on the 27th of October and it was delivered to my door today November 2nd. How wonderful to open a bag full colourful yarn and start crocheting with you. Till next Sunday.


Can you recommend a wool yarn with these colors

danielle harris

hiis there a PDF of this for me to print out anywhere?, thanks Danielle (again)


What lovely colour schemes for both of these blankets. Brilliant.


Love your work and unending enthusiasm. Thank you for sharing so freely.


Ahhh - I love your blankets best of all! This is so lovely!


Hi! I'd love to do a crochet along, but I have so much going on right now, it isn't the right time for me. Will you do another next year do you think? Thanks! X


I do so love your blog. It was the first one I ever read, and like others who have commented above, I taught myself to crochet inspired by you and your makings. I've made two blankets and four wreaths. I live "down south" but did make a journey to Skipton a couple of years back when in the area for a graduation. Thank you for all your brightness and cheer. I wish you were my sister!


Thank you SOOOOOOOOO much Lucy...can't wait to get started...hook and yarn pack been ready since Thursday!


I should be tidying the house but can't resist the urge to start another granny stripe in the new color scheme. Thanks much


Fabulous, especially the log cabin blanket. I like quilting, and this really appeals to me. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's progress. CJ xx

What wonderful new ideas again with easy explanations for beginners. Colour choices just blend together. Keep blanketing. Sorry didn't get to speak to you at Yarndale. Maybe next time. Tomorrow off to York for a few days. Your blog would encourage anyone to visit Yorkshire a great county !!!

Jo Wilson

Thank you so much for this CAL Lucy...I have just completed my first square and love it so much, very sunny and happy. I've printed out the shortened version which is very helpful...I hope you don't mind but I noticed a typo in Round 4 - line 2... I think it should read "Ch 6 (counts as 1dtr plus ch-2): 1 dtr, 2tr;" I think the second dtr is missing from the written instructions. Many thanks again for this CAL & all the work you have obviously put into it...loving it!! :-))


Oh my that granny stripe is a feast for the eyes on a foggy grey november day, must resist this time as I still have three other blankets on the go. Have fun

Am waiting for my yarn to arrive in the mail. I plan to do the granny stripes. Just want to verify that you are using British terms not US terms.



Very very tempted to do this :) Xxxxx


Thank you Lucy! I buyed the Sunny pack immediately, to be ready today. Your blankets are gorgeous, I can barely choose between them. At least, I choose the Sunny Log Cabin blanket, I want to try the Log Cabin pattern! <3
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
