Hi Lucy where do the nextcolours and parts of the Cal for the dahlia pattern? It’s such a lovely pattern and range of colours!

Marcia Nelson

I can’t find the colour sequence beyond the first 15 stripes....can you tell me where to find it please?

Georgia Pearce

Hi Lucy, I am late to the party and would love to make the Dahlia blanket. Are the instructions still available please?

Jane Archer

Dear Lucy
I’m in lockdown and have started the Dahlia Blanket (mixed colours) for my granddaughter. I’ve done 4 others, and just find them so addictive. I’ve found the colour chart to stripe 15, but cannot find where to get the stripes from Row 16-99.
Please can you let me know what stripes follow on. Unfortunately the pack didn’t come with the pattern.
I just love your work, you are keeping me occupied during my 12 weeks isolation! Thank you.

Helen Bason

when counting the stripes does each colour count as 1 or two stripes.

Anita Parker

I’ve just bought yarn pack and would appreciate colour sequence as going to use hydrangea pattern. Thank you Anita

Hi Lucy, I have missed the cal for the dahlia blanket. Can I get the pattern from somewhere?

Christine Condon

Please help me find the dahlia blanket cal & or pattern



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?


How exciting! Can't wait to get started 😍

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.

Very happy to say I received the Dahlia blanket pack as a gift for Christmas!!! Roll on the 3rd January....lovely hooky evenings ahead. Thank you for your inspiration Lucy, and may I wish you and yours a very Happy and Healthy New Year! XX

Just got the wool in and cannot wait to start. Such beautiful colours. Thank you Lucy for another courful blanket


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


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...!


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.


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.
