Hello want to start with neat wave pattern cushion before attempting moorland blanket. How many chains are there in the foundation chain please for the cushion you showed.

Lorna Truscott

This cushion cover is gorgeous Lucy. I am having trouble subscribing to this conversation so apologies if you've already answered this question, what size is the starting chain for this please?


It looks like 80 stitches across? Anyone else worked it out? I just need to know how many to chain to start 😞 Thanks for any help xxxx


I'm fairly new at crocheting besides Flowers & trims & im looking for some easy to follow patterns for blankets & cushions using basic stitches, just wondering if you could help as your work is gorgeous. I found your blog from a group on Facebook & I was looking for your raindrop cushion pattern.

Sorry, should have said Thank You for giving me the solution to a recent problem. I was knitting a blanket in Fisherman's rib for a great grandson born last year. It became too difficult because of pain in my hands so I'm going to try to make a crochet blanket instead, with the stitch pattern of your Moorland Blanket. I love working with multi colours and I'm sure that little Bernard Hektor will like them too.

I started life not far from you nearly 73 years ago, in Keighley. I knit, crochet and embroider. I'm fascinated by your design of the Moorland Blanket. I love the stitch instructions, especially for the first few rows. The shades of green and the rippling lines make me think of Nessy.

Hilary Minter

Hi Lucy , I am loving your patterns and got the pack for the moorland blanket, but as am new to crochet I am going to start with a cushion. How many chain did you start with? I may have missed it but noted number of stripes etc.

Thank you in advance



I love all the colors and the wave pattern! Beautiful!

Hi from pa USA. Was wondering if you are putting together a"bundle "of colors to make a blanket with this pattern and colors or do we need to order each color separately?? Thanks so much linda


It's so You! I love it! Your unplanned random colors are beautiful together. You really have a gift with color.


Hi Lucy,
I am having difficulty subscribing by email to your blog here in U.S. Can you advise me?


So lovely!


I was directed to this site by a penpal in South Africa, and here I am on the south coast of England in Essex how amazing.
Just loving the colours you use and your skill in matching them up, I am filled with inspiration now so looking forward to having a go myself, thank you, thank you from Veronica


What can I say....except wow! Fab-u-lous!

love the mixed button look


Beautiful as always Lucy! I love a plump cushion ❤️👏


It's a lovely mix of colors. The wave design looks lovely.


This looks so bright and comfy. I'm totally loving the plumpness. Your tip about the buttons is getting logged away. Very handy to know!


Gorgeous. Just the thing to snuggle against in winter with a kitty on your lap. Take care.


LOVE your cushion, Lucy....and your gorgeous wee buttons plus all the tips ...

Enjoy your weekend!

Bravo! The pillow looks fantastic and blends so well with the other beautiful crocheted gems. You inspire me. Love it!


Just finding your blog and love it! Can't wait to join, but when I "subscribe," I failed. :o( Lovely colors, lovely projects.
