Hey!! I know you say not to worry about the bumpy edges, but if on row 5 you skip the second to last stitch and put your last treble in the last stitch it makes things quite even and lovely if you have no wish to add a border! I’ve done it on two blankets now! (Well, done on one that’s finished, no border, straight sides and lovely, the second will have a border and is a wip!) :)

Hi how would this work using aran weight yarn (I'm in u. K). Looking at making a baby blanket. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you


The pattern is lovely but it isn't correct. I've started this twice and never got the correct number of trebles either time because the number of chains in foundation chain is off. To get the correct number of stitches between the last treble and the 2 treble you will need to chain multiples of 3 + 2 so for example 198 (multiple of 3s) + 2 = 200. Hopefully this will work. 3rd time lucky!

Hi everyone across the pond! I'm writing from north of Boston, MA, in the US. Im working on a super bulky blanket for my grandson right now and I want to start this one for a baby blanket (using size 3 yarn, baby weight.) as soon as I'm done with my grandson's!

I couldn't find on your blanket instructions how to finish with the border. Did you use one row of multiple colors?

Thanks for letting me know.!

Angeline Nietling

please print pattern

Gail Slaughter

I just figured it out I have to do 196 Thanks anyway

Gail Slaughter

I love this pattern but I also want to know about Foundation chain we start out with 198 chains if I do foundation chain do I only do 194 trebles? Please respond as soon as possible I can't wait to start this project

Mandy Long

Can I suggest than instead of starting with a chain row, and then a treble row, you do a foundation treble row instead? This is much easier to do and it means you can work out the correct number of trebles and length as you go along. I learnt how to do this from a friend and always start my blankets this way now.
Btw, I LOVE your blankets and will be trying this one soon.


Could this be adapted to make a shawl/sweater?


To make it a Queen size how many chains I need to do and yarn do I need?


Oh dear, I had an afghan pattern chosen and the yarn bought and ready to go. Now I see this gorgeous afghan and I must change my mind and make this one!
Since I have #4 weight yarns, I will see if I have enough yarn or will need more and try and figure out the amount of stitches.
This is drop dead gorgeous thank you.


Thank you for sharing..blessings your way.so nicely explained.Thank you..
Everything we need to know and More is here..God bless you..
Kind regards.


For those wanting to adjust the size of the blanket, it states in above notes that you chain in multiples of 3 to achieve the size you want.

My cousin got me into your gorgeous patterns and crochets, and your use of colour combinations are awesome. I’m having a go at this one, in muted tones of creams, beiges and greys, at the moment and it’s just so easy but super effective. It really has the wow factor! THANK YOU for your beautiful, inspirational site. And keep those ideas coming! I’m addicted!!

Re the Craftworld direct plagiarism of your work; great advice to watermark images, but initially I would check to see how much more of your work has been copied by them, and then approach them to ask for a name-check and a link to Attic24 website. If that doesn’t work (and to be fair it should) sight the fact that this is your intellectual property and you can prove that you posted this pattern almost six years ago.

At the end of the day copying, they say, is the most sincere form of flattery, but it would be nice to get some recognition for your own creations!

Val Hayward

Lucy, after reading some of the comments, I had a look and saw this other site
has indeed copied everything from your pattern, including all the pictures, and without crediting you.
Can I suggest that you watermark all of your pictures, which would make it difficult if not impossible to pass off a picture as their own.
Some people just don't play fair.

Mary Thomson

would like to make a smaller size how do I do that it's just for a cot.

Where can I find this pattern without all the comments


For those wanting this in a print format... select all of the instructions,right click, select copy. Then open MS Word from your laptop and right click and select paste. Remove or reduce pictures to suit your needs.

Remember to copy the web address and paste this at the start or end of the word document to ensure our lovely Lucy gets due credit.


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

Patricia A

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.

Karen Riley

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
