This post is so wonderful! But I especially love the title. The Dutch word for hope is 'hoop' (pronounced as 'hope'). So at first, I read this as Fields of Gold Hope. Which is exactly what the world needs right now.


This is a lovely design from your friend Jane. Thank you for sharing and I hope lots of money is raised.


Hello Lucy,

I just had to give the blanket a little rest 😉.

For a long time, I wanted to make an Easter Bunny and then I came across this adorable creature and couldn’t resist: https://freeamigurumi.picpin.pro/sweet-bunny-amigurumi-free-crochet-pattern/ The pattern is occasionally in a bit of 'funny' English, but I dare say I'm getting it right.

Last week we had some 16 °C, whilst yet it is again snowing and very cold due to the wind blowing, in other words: the blanket will be continued with shortly 😊.

Have a nice evening.

Warm greetings from a cold Vulkan Eifel,


Lucy, I am a long time follower of your blog but this is my first time posting.
I am Ukrainian currently living in the US with my whole family scattered all over Ukraine..
What a great choice of a pattern for the cause - we adore sunflowers in Ukraine, it's somewhat of a national flower.
I will be forever grateful to people of the UK and other European countries for their kindness and generosity towards Ukrainians in these awful times.


This is beautiful and I ordered the pattern, some yarn and the metal hoops from Amazon. Just waiting now for the yarn to be delivered. There is a handy chart that comes with the pattern comparing the UK and US crochet stitches which is helpful. Thanks for bringing this beautiful pattern to our attention.


Bought the pattern and crocheted the sunflower. Sounds easy doesn't it? Not so ;-) After ripping up; changing yarn; going to the store buying some more yarn; ripping up; trying not to confuse American and UK crochet terminology; reading the pattern again and again (because it is not my language)talking to my daughter in law who also made the sunflower the same evening; ; I managed to finally finish the flower. Remind me next time I get a sudden impulse to buy a crochet pattern, to take a deep breath and then sleep on it before making the decision. But this time though the effort was for Ukraina. All for Ukraina.


Very pretty!
Thank you!

Thank you so much, Lucy! I love Jane's patterns and have made almost as many of her designs as I have of yours! Two of my favorite crochet gurus in one project, what fun!!


It's brilliant, so sunny and happy and a really good cause. Lovely to see so many people donating money to help. CJ xx


I had bought this gorgeous pattern a little while ago as it's such a worthy cause. The war in Ukraine is so devastating. I havent made a sunflower yet though. Yours looks just beautiful!

What have you done? 😂 I've just ordered a pattern I've got zero chance of understanding and will probably never manage to complete, but it is so beautiful and with a donation to Ukraine as well it had to be bought! 💛💙
Oh well, I can dream that one day I'll have a sunflower hanging in my house. 🌻
