Nice information thanks for sharing...


Hi Lucy, as always your colour work is lush. You make it so easy for novice crochet lovers to get inspired. Please could you advise what stitch the sampler stripe is as I’d like to do a blanket based on it.
Thanks and keep inspiring

Just received my yarn pack.
Is there a colorwash that I could use?
Looking for the stripes, colorwash.



Thank you for your beautiful patterns. I am looking forward to making this blanket to use in my new craft/yoga/reading space


Thank you so much for your lovely designs! I have ordered the yarn and I will be working on the striped version. Could you tell me which stripe pattern you have used for the sample in the photo?

I meant slip stitch!

Hi Lucy,
Just started the Fireside and I'm enjoying it. Question: In the joining part, in the corners there is the ship stitch but no ch1 as in the other corners. Is this correct or should there be a ch 1? thanks!!


I love your blog which I have been reading for years.
Your patterns have really helped me get back into crochet. I learned from my grandmother when I was a teenager and wanted to crochet a hippie triangle scarf!
I notice that you almost always use acrylic yarn and not wool/ natural yarns (apart from cotton). What is your reasoning for this?
Thank you

Gorgeous cosy blanket, and lovely photos of your summer. I have somehow been missing posts as Bloglovin hasn't really been working for me lately. I used to go to the Isle of Wight when I was little, it's lovely there isn't it. I dropped my eldest at uni a week ago, so it has all been a bit of a change here. Lovely to pop in here and see all of your news. CJ xx


I cannot crochet despite trying so hard many times, I just don’t get it. However, I love to read your blog, there’s always so much inspiration, joy, and wonderful colours and creativity. X


I can't get over how beautiful your color palette is. When I first saw the long stripe sample, I just said myself, "wow!" Color, lots of it, rich and deep, melting one into the other. Seriously harmonious indeed. The closest I can come to describing how it makes me feel is how comfort food makes me feel. Brava, Lucy. Brava!

Thank you so much for the stripe version, while I LOVE your Fireside blanket, after doing your Aria blanket a while ago, the lazy side of me is looking for less ends to weave in!! 😂🙂💕


Lovely pretty scene, yay for crochet blankets.

How fortunate and lovely to have a fire; it must be reassuring to not be dependent on gas or electric for heat with the horrendous prices making usage a no no. Am shivering here even in all the blankets, which are of course a blessing. Not one jot cosy for many. Autumn doesn't quite work if the damp is inside as well as outside.

Hope things look up for everyone soon.


Thank you Lucy!! Glad I waited for the stripe version, it's gorgeous!
Than you for sharing your talents.
Wondering if you would please share your granny josephine bag on the blog, I've been following this since you started it but never seen the complete version. Please share a Ta-Dah post xxxx


Thank you for the info on how we could work with stripes & I expect "tension" comes into play at times with the finished size. I certainly don't crochet as nice as you, but love the process anyway. I do like the look of that new wool you've used & will have to do a lot of thinking. Take care & hugs from down under.


I absolutely love these fireside colours in the stripey blanket. I’m currently doing your coastal ripple blanket but have also been sampling the hydrangea pattern which I love, so I’m going to have a go at that one too with the fireside colours. Can’t wait to receive my order! Thank you so much for everything you do. Xxx


Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the work you do. And for bringing me back to crochet a decade and a half ago. I have 4 blankets in my to-do-queue. But, I had to order this one because of the incredible colors!!
Now I have enough crochet projects to keep me busy until I'm 85!!

Hi, just wondering about Round 8 of the large square. Should this be done on the right side or the wrong side? Round 7 is on the wrong side and then turn the work but Round 8 also says wrong side. Thanks.

Gillian selby

Was wondering what stitch you used in the stripe version ?


Wow. I was just thinking about doing a repeat of last year's Christmas blanket for me as I gave away last years to my daughter. Now I know I have to do this one. Thank you for the pattern I will be ordering the kit this week. Many thanks Lucy.

This in striped looks lovely what stitch stripe pattern have you used in the photo ?


Thank you for all the effort you put into your patterns and that you try to please everyone's style and preference. Your commitment to help everyone enjoy crochet is wonderful.


Thank you so much for all the work you always put in to your patterns! I love reading about the whole process:)
It always brightens my day to read your posts.
I really do love you!
