Hia Lucy
I love reading your blog, hearing about your family and trying some of your lovely patterns. I started The Moorland Blanket when you first released it, but I was having problems getting the ripples to interlock correctly, so I put the blanket away. After a number of attempts (I am now on repeat 55), just when I think I’ve sussed it, I go wrong. I wonder whether you could please help me - am I right in thinking that the two trebles sit above the 2nd and 3rd double of the previous row? I’m sure I remember you saying that, when you started this pattern, you had to pull back a few rows, so I’m sure you will be able to explain how I should get the pattern to line up.
I really would like to complete the blanket this winter. I look forward to hearing from you, many thanks and Happy Crocheting, Love Carol xxx


I'd love to see more of Sandra's hedgerow blanket, the colours look beautiful.


Ellie's colors are wonderful - any chance of sharing?

This is my first CAL and my first pattern of yours. I love your moorland colours so much I couldn't resist. I started a week late and was so slow to start with I thought I would slip further behind but the pace has really picked up now - only 2 more stripes until part 3. I am so excited about working towards the halfway point this week! Thank you so much for this lovely pattern and tutorial, it is giving me so much pleasure and satisfaction :0)


I have just finished week 1 so 3 weeks behind. My sides are straighter but my patterns do not align going up they are a little more random. I don't know why? Anyone?

Rowena Corlett

Still way behind and still loving it and getting faster and more sure of the stitches each row!I wanted to say how well my tension is working with a 5mm hook and how I was really concerned that the 5mm was going to produce a too loose fabric but I trusted you and I am so glad I did!! Thanks Lucy.


Charlotte, thanks so much for the information about the yarn.. I have never used this particular yarn and can't wait to see the colors. They look beautiful on my screen and want to get started on the blanket. Husband really likes the colors of the blanket so he has already claimed it as his own Lucy.LOL


Hello Lucy, I love your Moorland blanket but would like to change colours like Petras stroll on the beach.
For I never have worked with the recommended wool I hope you can give a tipp which colours are used.


Have ordered fro, WoolWarehouse several times and it is usually 8-12 days. Last time was 2 weeks but it was Christmas. I am in Florida.


all the blankets are beautiful...wish my yarn would get here so I could start mine :( I live in the US and sent off for it Jan 11, checked my orders and said it was dispatched & was going to be sent by royal post? or royal mail? does anybody have an idea of how long it takes to ship to the US? thanks for listening and hope to join y'all soon with my blanket.


Just lovely to see a bunch of crochet pictures lucy
I blog crochet as you may know as part of my blog -it's becoming rather a large section now with the blog CAL


Just finished Part 2 - have cracked the problem with alignment - perseverance paid off! Hurrah!

Hi, Lucy - I am running behind because of unforeseen incidents that came up, but I am determined to get caught up. This blanket is so beautiful and I am looking forward to using it once I get it finished. Your color choices are amazing. I'll let you know later how I am doing on the blanket.


Hello Lucy, thank you so much for this wonderful pattern, the clear instructions and these wonderfull colours. It's hard for me to wait until next friday!


Lol am I the only Yank here from the USA?
I haven't started yet- reading and doing my swatch- which I never do normally!! Started with a G hook then found the waves didn't look much like waves so I'm down to a 3.75 F hook!!
Not liking the feel of it but the yarn looks better. I guess I crochet rather looser than I thought I did.
Loving to colors here.
Is there a Facebook page for this CAL? Does anyone have a link?
When I'm done with this I'm making one in the coastal pack. Such amazing colors!!
Thank you so much Lucy.
Please make a PDF for us US crocheters as I converted yours but at times I'm worried I got one stitch wrong or missed one.
Thank you!!


Socks finally finished and sent to my sister-in-law for her birthday. Now on to your beautiful blanket.

Brenda Cupryna

love all those blankets and seeing the colours that others are using. so much creativity.


I'm so glad I'm not the only one that is behind. I started late and I haven't been able to catch up. I finally got the rhythm of the stitches so maybe I'll start to crochet a little faster. I was excited to reach the first purple row! It really seemed like I made it to a milestone! I love the colors and the blanket is just getting to the stage where I can have the warmth of it on my lap. My six month old kitty, Annie, loves it too! Your Tilly has some of the same expressions as my Annie does. Having fun making memories with my blanket. Off to get a little more done before bed.

Hi, my name is Rod and I would like to tell you a little about myself and the reasons I have bought the moorland wool packs. When I was young I lived in Sheffield and my dad and I used to go rambling every weekend we could, he even used to put me in the top of his rucksack before I could walk. We would go to the Peak District National Park which is mostly moorland but I have not been able to walk there for many years due to disabilities. The colours could not be more accurate, thanks for the happiness success.


As I am knitting a Fair Isle cardigan for my small nephew's birthday next month as well as working part time, I am almost a week behind. However before your lovely colours inspired me I had been 55 years a knitter but thought crotchet not for me. I have followed your blog for years just for admiration of your homemaking and colour sense. I also had never tried to work out a colour scheme. I retire in the summer and, inspired by you and the other blankets you show, am already planning more blankets inspired by Dorset and my own living room colours. You have added a new dimension to my life. Thank you so much

I am really enjoying making the Moorland blanket, it's just so soothing after a busy day at work. The colours remind me so much of Dartmoor and Bodmin. I'm getting more and more behind now but I can see it's going to be worth it. I have some time off soon and I saw there's a catch up week in the schedule too, so maybe I'll not be too far behind at the finish.


I am having trouble too. Not sure what I am doing wrong.I put the blanket aside lest I become frustrated and quit. The 10 stitch pattern is easy enough but my ends are having some serious issues. (self-taught youtube video crocheter - this may be the reason why)


So far behind after struggling with this pattern and the ends of each row. I have it now but I am not even done week one. So much ripping out it makes me sad. Very disheartening for my first CAL. Not going to give up though.

So much inspiration! I love all the different takes on it. One of the things I love most about crochet, you can take an idea and make it your own. Have a great weekend Lucy!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
