The dune blanket is just beautiful & what a lovely surprise to see we both love The Shell Seekers. I've also read it quite a few times over the years & loved the movie adaptation with Angela Lansbury.
We are currently renovating, & totally redecorating, the home we moved into last year, & I've realised the dune colours are perfect for the Laura Ashley duck egg Summer Palace wallpaper I have chosen for a feature wall in our bedroom. I think perhaps a larger version of the blanket to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in August would be perfect. Thank you for another amazing project, I've made the hydrangea & the sweet pea harmony so for this year, & the moorland last year.


Fantastic Lucy just simply beautiful ♥♥


Yay! Thank you Lucy - another gorgeous blanket and I’m looking forward to getting my yarn......just in time for our Winter.

Hi Lucy - Oh my goodness...This blanket is GORGEOUS. I already ordered the pack! I love the stripes as is, but am also interested in the color wash version. In fact, the sample is stunning and I think I might want to crochet it that way. I would love it if you’d work out that option and post it. I can’t wait to get started!!!


Hi Mrs. Lucy, I am an 11 year old crochet enthusiast. my mom introduced me to your blog and I instantly fell in love with it. I've already made your Weekend Bag project, and it was wonderful. This will be my 1st crochet blanket. Thank you so much for sharing this blanket pattern!!! The colors are sublime.


Beautiful pattern, Lucy. Thank you for letting us share the journey. Very very tempted by the colour wash scheme! Need to quickly finish a blue and grey road network Cosy Stripe blanket first!

I think my partner may leave me if I buy any more yarn (still haven't started the lovely moorland blanket I promised to make him!) but I need this!! I love all of your blankets equally, I cannot possibly have a favourite! I want to make them all!! and I will....eventually :)


Beautiful blanket. Great colors.


Hi Lucy, after years and years of reading your blog and seeing your blankets and wanting to make one but not quite pulling the plug, this is the one that finally got me to put in my order. This will be my first blanket! My mom grew up by the beach (but here in New England) & her family is still there. These colors sing to me of early mornings, being the only one on the beach, & of summer! I can't wait to make this for her!!!


This colourway is gorgeous, your best yet. I've placed my order and hope it is delivered quickly as I just can't wait to get started.

Hi Lucy, this is a fabulous blanket, thank you! I too would love the colour sequence for the colour wash version. Many thanks in advance Claire Pascoe


Fantastic colours and lovely photo shooting on the beach and the dunes.
Well done, Lucy!!

Beautiful choice of colors.


I've been waiting for this, I have a separate little account that I save for buying wool, it rounds up my debit transactions and put the change in another account so just waiting a little bit longer to have enough to buy this, I love both sides of the blanket, it looks really squishy. Thanks for all the instructions!x


Hooray! I’m so excited and grateful for this new pattern! Thank you and I’m looking forward to crocheting the coast!

I love the soft colors and the shells are just...wonderful is the only word I can think of. Thank you for another treasure Lucy.

Gorgeous colour palette, can't wait to get started!


I’m so excited. My yarn pack is on the way to New York.


Thank you Lucy. I love the colours in this blanket and they go so well with the shell pattern, you are so clever! I can't wait to get started on mine so I can snuggle up in it. Thanks again.

The picture where your dear hubby is holding it all the way up high, is a delight in that it perfectly captures the colors and feeling of the dunes. He did good as did you with the camera. I especially like how it looks like bumpily windblown sand on one side then when you flip the sandy bumps - it uncovers a bevy of sparkly shells. So cool as I really love the texture of this one.


it's beautiful - I've ordered my yarn pack :)
I know just what you mean about trying to get good photographs on a cold windy beach!


Love this blanket - the shell pattern is just gorgeous & really eye catching...this will be my first attempt at a crocheted blanket & I shall be starting this whilst sat by the sea using the coast wool pack (purchased from my fabulous local yarn shop)...looking forward to seeing it grow row by row. Thank you for the inspiration & clear guidance xx

Lucy this blanket is absolutely stunning. So me with the sea & collecting shells. You mentioned a colour wash version & I love to way the colours lie as well on this one. I would love a colour wash version too if possible . Thank you for your beautiful patterns & the love & time that goes into them xxxxxxx

Absolutely stunning! I’ve ordered my color pack. Now to decide if I’m going to do the original stripes or the color wash. Decisions, decisions! Thank you for all you do Lucy. Your work is amazing and appreciated! 💗


Absolutely gorgeous Lucy, as ever ... I love how you pick out the natural colours and weave them into your blankets! I am soooo behind as I'm still busy with my Woodland Blanket (!!) but so looking forward to this in the future, and seeing everyone else's pop up online. BTW I adore The Shell Seekers, I've also read it a thousand times. I love Coming Home and Winter Solstice as well ... excellent reads whilst tucked under one our crochet blankets! <3
