Beautiful Blanket

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?

I am so excited to crotchet this rainbow colorful Afghan. I can hardly wbait for the directionleah


If you haven't tried it yet, try this pattern with Caron Cakes!! I'm working on my 2nd one and they turn out soooo perfect!


Love it! It’s so beautiful! Thank you.

I love this blanket and am now on to my fifth one. They are so pretty and loved by my friends who receive them. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern.

I just started this blanket to use up way too many skeins in my bursting closet. I decided to do the entire repeat in one color before changing colors; i.e. rows 1-5. It looks great, just wider stripes than your original.


I am self-taught and have always struggled with how to weave in the ends - your tutorial makes me shake my head and think "I should'a known that..." THANK YOU


Love all the pictures I will share this pattern for sure ...

This is beautiful, I think I'll make one this winter


Love love love this pattern! Almost completed the blanket, making for youngest son who is autistic and has a thing for soft textures and bright colours :D


bowing aside the pattern is lovely and easy to do.


Helllllp, can any one tell me why my blanket from row 3 onward dosnt lay straight its developed a bow or wave as some have mentioned.

Is there a link to a forum on this blanket? I see many questions in the comments but no answers. I am planning to start this lovely blanket shortly for a new baby girl. I’ve used Stylecraft Special DK on several blankets and really like it. I suppose I can work out the approximate length of the starting chain for a baby blanket from the instructions given for single bed size.

Love this simple pattern. Works great for a caron cakes. I found that crocheting the last two together makes a smoother edge.

Hi Lucy I love love love this site thankyou. I'm making the cosy stripe blanket , but on row 3 I seem to have 2 extra trebles, where am I going wrong?

Libby McDaniel

Hello, I am in the US and have a question. When I chained 198 for the foundation row and started the first row in the 4th chain from the hook I have 194 stitches instead of the 196. Am I doing something wrong?


I have already made a Attic24 Cosy Stylecraft Special DK (15 Shades) - and now want to make another one but in different colours - any suggestions of what set to buy?
