Beautiful blanket! I’d love to Pin it to my Pinterest board, but it doesn’t seem possible.


Love the baby gender neutral version of this blanket I saw on Pinterest. Do you know how many stitches to cast on for a baby blanket size? Thank you

Saw this pattern on another website. Using your instructions (recognised the way you format and the diagrams)
Website is 'Craft for the World' https://craftfortheworld.com/index.php/2019/04/11/cosy-stripe-blanket/
I wouldn't have minded, but there was no reference to your work at all on the page.

Are these balls of yarn center pull or pull from the outside? I love this pattern and can’t wait to start it


Hi how would i put a border around this. Any suggestions please but if a beginner. Thank you


I love this blanket and wish I could save it on my Pinterest board.


If you chain 198 and go in the 4th chain, that doesn’t give you 196 at the end of row 2. Please explain

Karen Adams

Hello is there a printable version of this pattern available for purchase anywhere online or off? Thank you!

Loretta Tackett

I love this pattern, I like a challenge.

Heather Patrick

Lovely will hope to try it this coming winter which is nearly upon us. Thank you your instructions are very well written.


Hi There - this is being posted in some crochet groups - thought you should know.


Hi i have tried to subscribe to your web site but i am having no luck please can you help


Can someone please let me know how many chains do I start with if I want to make this blanket larger. the 198 vs. 196 is throwing me off. I'm not good at written directions. can I do 264 chains?

im going to Make this for my Mandi. it reminds me of her being bright and beautiful and not the same boring thing, unpredictable in every way beautiful

Maria Pacheco

Hi! Could you check out this woman's etsy listing. Myself and a bunch of others are under the impression she is calling patterns hers when they are not. This I think is extremely close to your blanket.



Thank you so much for all your lovely patterns...easy to do because of your clear pictures and explanation. I'm very very happy with it! With kind regards, Petra

Wonderful, beautiful blanket,


Hi. A lovely friend of mine at work has asked me to make a blanket for her grandson’s toddler size bed. I’m going to go with the cosy stripe. It’s so lovely! Does anyone have any idea what size a toddler bed blanket would need to be?
