Hi Lucy, waving at you across the pond and across the USA from Oregon!! I am thoroughly loving this pattern! I have 9 rows done! I might just keep up with this CAL! LOL! I'm doing the 3rd pattern.. the repeating stripe one. *LOVE*

I'll be doing a blog post on my progress on Monday.

((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Loved starting mine tonight, thank you. The 'Sarah Raven' catalogue is known as garden porn in my house. Xx

It’s 34 degrees here in Sydney, just back from the beach, I’m going to put the fan on and sit directly in its blast and start my tension sample, I’m so excited to be able to do this and THNAK YOU Lucy for generating sooooo much joy around the world in our little Sweet Pea Community and being the generous soul you clearly are! Xxx 🙂🙂


Oohhh so excited now. I have had a stash of this yarn forever in my cupboard, must have been waiting for just this blanket. These flowers are very special to me as my Dad used to grow these and Stock for me when I was a little girl. Thank you. Thank you so much for this CAL.
Is there a PDF we can print out of the tension tester and the actual pattern at all.
As I find reading from a sheet of paper somehow easier for me. 😱

Chrisoula Charalambides

Thank you started it all ready👏👏👏👏

Oh, Lucy, I can NOT tell you how I've been looking forward to this. This morning, when I realized THIS IS THE DAY LUCY WILL POST THE PATTERN, honest to goodness, I did the Happy Dance! I'm going to start my sample ASAP. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lucy. This is so lovely. Have a beautiful weekend and God bless.

Madelein Oosthuizen

Such a stunning pattern!!! Struggled a bit with row 1-3
but now all set on row 4. It’s already strongly competing
with Hydrangea for the best pattern ever!! 😍😍 Thank
you so much Lucy!! Xx #colourwash

My hook’s been “twitching” ever since I bought my yarn and I’ve been so excited waiting to start my Sweet Pea (Posy) blanket! I haven’t joined in with a CAL before but I love the thought that there are so many of us joining in all over the world, making our blankets together. I’m not new to crochet but I am new to crocheting blankets, so I was a little daunted. But your detailed instructions and accompanying photos are fab so I needn’t have worried 😏. I’ve just made my tension sample, chosen my hook size and can’t wait to start my ”blanket proper” tomorrow! Your “Trellis Stripe” stitch pattern is beautiful Lucy, Thankyou so much.

Andrea Tomlinson

Looking forward to starting this.


I'm so excited about this! Thank you Lucy! I just read through the instructions, and I think this will be a great next blanket for me to work on - I am just about to finish your Granny Stripe blanket, which is my first crochet item ever. The instructions look clear and I'm sure I will refer to them often. Really looking forward to starting this weekend.

Linda Williams

Loving the pattern so relaxing and therapeutic, once past the first couple of rows when I breathed a sigh of relief that the pattern was set correctly lol. Thank you so much Lucy for all your hard work. xx


Love the paint stirrer idea! I've order some and will try to complete a stirrer for each blanket made so far, as well as starting the colourwash sweet pea - no pressure lol!


Thanx Lucy for the pattern! I’m going for the colourwash and I’m totally hooked in already. Love your blog. It always makes me smile.

Been looking forward to this all over Christmas! Love the colours. As previous can't find clematis and two loads of Magneta.Thankyou Lucy

I know a lot of little girls that would enjoy the small sample blanket for their dolls. I don't expect you to provide yet another version BUT I will try to do this myself. It will be like I'm working in my own garden! Sure glad sweet peas don't have thorns! For anyone new - YES do the sample as she has in the first part of the instructions since your own piece and tension will be your own and not hers. This will allow you to be happy with the final results. And always tuck your ends in from color changes along the way to eliminate a big job at the end.

Elaine Barton

Collected my yarn pack from Post Office early this morning and I am so excited about the colours. They are so beautiful. Already worked a tension piece and this is ok
The trellis pattern is lovely
Going to start now on the blanket.
I've chosen to work the colourways option
Thanks Lucy x

Heidi Clarke

;ooops found it been a long week 😂😂

Heidi Clarke

Thought I was going and until I read other comments,definitely can't find the oattern😮

Sandra Viglietti

I'm not seeing the sweet pea pattern either.

Carla Davis

In the 15 colours magenta is no 4 and 12. Clematis is not mentioned. Is this a mistake? Where do I find the pattern

Sarah Simons-Boswell

In previous years I have made single blankets but this time I want to make baby blankets - how many stripes will I need to do in total, and will the weekly sections have details for baby blanket size? Thanks x

Wendy Toves

Love this pattern but would like to just have the pattern in the usual way. Don't always have access to a laptop etc. Will you be putting it all together in a down loadable form?


Yeah!!!!! A few rows before bed. Xxx


I can’t fnd the actual instructions for the first part of the blanket. Like the foundation chain length info etc?

Christine Sourbutts

How many do you chain for the blanket I cant see that Cant wait to start looks lovely
