Thank you, Lucy, for sharing this pattern. I'm using this to make my granny square (travel) blanket. Is different to yours, but the rows are the same, if that makes sense. Will be posting about it soon on my blog and give you credit. I love your writing and work!
Best wishes, Lish

I used the chain count given in one of the comments for a baby afghan, it was perfect. I ended up doing solid colors, then varigated, but very different. The border I used was a ruffle, it came from an instruction book of border stitches. I wish I could show the photos from my phone. I made it for my first great-great niece and it came out really pretty. It's on Facebook.
# of chains for a lapgan, I would probably use close to what I used for the baby afghan, 130 was suggested, and was great, and as it grew, and it got colder outside, it was a lovely lap warmer for myself as I worked.

I made it for my first great-great niece. Because the parents chose not to know the baby's sex before her birth, I just went a little wild with colors, came out beautiful. I added a border from another pattern. It should be there by now! I was thrilled with it.


Ohhhhh I am so excited to start this I think it would be a great Christmas gift for friends! Maybe I will beable to use some of my stash! Looks easy for me and many blessing to you!🙏💓

Would like to do a toddler’s blanket, how many stitches for first row will I need?

Trudi Wright

I have been recommended to look at you beautiful blanket kits. I would love to order one, but am a little unsure about the video instruction. Are these always to be found? Bearing in mind, that it may take a time for me to complete it! Probably a silly question! I am looking forward to starting one very soon!

Cathy Wittmeyer

Hello! Is there a pattern for the border? In skipping the last stitch in row 5 there is a bump. You stated that since there is a border that will be ok. However, I don't see a pattern for the border. Please advise. Thank you.

Marie Kelly

Hello Lucy,
Thank you for your wonderful pattern for cosy stripe blanket. It has been a joy for me especially now that I am confined to home most of the time due to my heart failure. I look forward to crocheting the blanket and seeing the lovely colours Come together.Wool Warehouse are so efficient getting the wool together. Hope you keep well and your family. I love looking at your Crochet pictures.I finished a blanket recently and gave it to my cousin, she is delighted with it. Beautiful patterns. Thank You so much. Sincerely
Marie Kelly. 🙏🤗

How do I see peoples responses? I clicked the link but it goes to an html code page. I'm trying to make a baby blanket and can't seem to get the math right. I've made the Cosy Stripe before in regular size and I absolutely love it (actually have made 3!). I just can't quite get the pattern right for a smaller size.

Dian Adkins

Where can I purchase the pattern book???? Casey stripped blanket
To print takes 27 pages


I found 133 chain perfect for baby bkanket


Deb, it’s Stylecraft Special dk, an acrylic yarn. There’s a link in the blurb to a pack available from wool warehouse.co.uk where you can also see the colours used.


Im going to post a question here that I probably wont get a response to if the above questions are any indication but here goes.
I would like to know what yarn is used? Brand? Colors? I love the colors presented but there’s absolutely No info on that very important (to me) questions. Looks a bit military which is what Im going for.


Please can you advise instruction to make baby blanket.
ie how many chain to start and finished size. Also would 15 balls make 2 x baby blanket size?
I love the colours!
Thank you

Lisa  Retzer

Hello! I have seen a lot of requests for help changing the size of a blanket pattern like the Cosy Stripe. Maybe she modified the original tutorial. I just started this one.
Lucy states in bold type how many chain multiples at the beginning.

Multiples of 3 beginning chains for this one!
Hope this helps.
