Hello,

I've posted this on the Rav thread for this blanket, but thought I'd post it here as well.

I’m making a swatch and have a question. The instructions say I should have 25 trebles on my first row on the chain, but I only have 24. Does the end count as 1 treble? I chained 27, and then in the 4th chain I put my first treble. So does that end part count as one treble, and the one in the 4th chain would be the 2nd treble? Thank you for your help. I am new to crochet and am following the instructions to make the blanket.

I have my pack and am excited to get started. I just needed to finish a couple of projects which I have done and can’t wait any longer. Just love these colours and very cheery with all this rains and bad weather we are having.
Thank you

I love these colours! I would go for the colourwash! But... I am not looking for a large blanket, I was searching the internet for a nice pattern for a blanket to keep my legs warm when in a wheelchair... I don't have a clue on what size I wuld need then. I recently used an existing blanket but that was way too large, it kept unfolding and got in the wheels or on the ground a lot of time... Anyone has an idea what would be a good size for a lap blanket? I may even be able to make 2 then, both colourwash and the stripes one, with 1 yarn package?

I've only just seen this, so behind before I start, and a complete beginner, but the colours are gorgeous and remind me of my dear Gran who grew the most amazing dahlias.

Jan Henley

OMG The colours are simply stunning. I can’t wait for my colour pack to arrive. Thanks also for the link to the Dahlia nursery. I’ve had to visit their website too and treat myself to some of their amazing plants!

So excited to start on such a beautiful blanket.

This blanket will be wonderfull..as usual !
Thanx for all your designs, i LOVE then all.

Susan

Oh! Those colors!!! 💗💛🧡❤️💗

When you start the CAL, would it be possible to talk about how to choose which size crochet hook? (Did you have a post about that already?) I can crochet enough to make a potholder, but no more. I love the colors so much that this may be the one where I take the plunge...!

Dawn

Beautiful, uplifting, inspirational - your blog is the best and I love recommending it to my friends who are new to crochet. Thank you so much Lucy for your AMAZING generosity in sharing your expertise with us lot! So much appreciated.

Silvia

I am going to print some of your photos and make myself a 2020 Dahlia Calendar!! I am really happy about this CAL!!! Can't wait to start!!!:)

Can we now assume that the "lots of pictures" you mentioned you took at this years Yarndale Festival including the table of Bears you promised will not be coming?
Those of us who contribute but can't attend look forward to those pictures.
This is what you wrote on October 3:
"I took lots of photos so will share much more of those when I write up my Yarndale post proper next week."

Mary Marsh

Absolutely lovely colorway! You do have an eye for making colors work; I envy you! Keep up the good work, LOVE your blog.

Hi Lucy - another work of art! A quick question. I am thinking I would like to incorporate a green into this colour palette - for the leaves /stalk. I think the 'Green' colour in this same yarn migh work. Will there be a 'repeat' on the colour stripes as this might be a good place to include the green otherwise will just see what I hint.

Carol

Hi Lucy
I'm sure your work will be as brilliant as ever and I thank you for all you do for us crochet-holics. Just one tiny, whispered plea though - pleeeease can your next blanket not be so pink?!
I have a family which includes lots of males which is part of the reason for my plea!
All good wishes

I love Dahlias and I love your blanket - can't wait to make it and all the other blankets! I just love 'em all!!!

Ruth

Ordered and I cannot wait to begin. Something pretty and colourful to look forward to in January.

Ruth White

Well the postman has just delivered a parcel of absolute deliciousness from Wool Warehouse. The colours are simply gorgeous. A real pick me up on such a wet and miserable day. I’ve never done a CAL before and can’t wait til January to get started. Just hope I can master the stitch as I’m fairly new to crochet and have never tackled anything this big before.Roll on the new year!

Winifred

Those colours are so gorgeous hadn't realised there were so many beautiful colours and shapes of dahlias. You've translated them so well in your blankets. Congratulations, your blankets are amazing.

Helen

Dahlias always remind me of my long gone Dad, he grew them all my life, eventually he ended up on a farm and invested in tunnels, as in your photos. I used to help him then take off most of the buds, that way ending up with 3 beautiful blooms on long stems.
He sold them to florists.
They also remind me of my mum, moaning about the amount of earwigs that dropped out of the petals after he had presented her with yet another bunch, many years before the tunnel growing.
Good memories

I like them, don’t grow them though.
Blanket looks lovely, I love colour but do not have any colourful blankets here. They have worked well in older cottages and other houses.
All the best to you and yours from Dorset !

Silvia Broekhuis
