Would love to see you do a follow along step by step for those who learn by watching another person do it. Maybe a you-tube video, as it makes it great for an add on to your photos on the blog. Thank you.


I’m looking to make this blanket baby size.

Could anyone help me with the pattern please?
Ideally I’d like 100chains rather than 198. However, as I’m dyslexic I’m finding it hard to work it out.. any help is greatly appreciated.. my attempts just grow and shrink lol

Thank you x


Im new to crochet and thOUGHT i would give this a go -butstuck -
My chain foundation row of 198 stitches only measures 84cms. Should I add more chains in multiples of 3 to make the 120 cms stated in pattern does that mean I will need more wool?
Also how do I see the response to all the comments? Your help appreciated thanks


Here is the link with the photo of the blanket with the granny square border. https://pin.it/H11pWcM


I see this blanket with an additional granny square boarder and it lovely. I bought the yarn kit from your link and was wondering if you had any idea how much more yarn to buy to be able to finish this with the extra granny boarder.

I would like to make an afghan out of this pattern...do you have a suggestion as to how many I would chain to make this project correct in size?

Thank you,
Teresa Parker


This looks wonderful, and I appreciate having both the detailed pictures and the abbreviated version to print! <3


Just finished a worsted weight version for my son due early September! I really like the simple pattern and I switched it up by doing a group of dc,dc cluster, dc rows with one color and then five sets of rows with other colors in random order (since I had a lot of one color and less of my others). I abbreviated the border too, but I'm so happy with the result and it worked up fast between the worsted and my need for stress relief! :)

I can’t wait to bake this blanket. What kind of edging would you suggest?

Hi Lucy, I wanted to tell you my Cosy Stripe blanket was just beautiful. I followed your instructions to the letter. As I was close to finishing my dear brother in law was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. I gifted it to him as a 60th birthday present, and the look on his face is something I will treasure forever. He was totally overcome to receive this gift. He absolutely loved it. Thank you so much

How do I do a border


Hi, I am also a newbie to making blankets. I would love to know the measurements/maths to be able to make this blanket smaller in width. I’d like to make some smaller doll blankets for my children at kinder.

Cindy Willman

I loved this pattern,it worked up so fast. I decided to finish it on the vertical because I was using up stash and did not think I could make it bigger. It's now my Cosy Seaside throw.

Rhonda Keen

Hi there, I have purchased Dune colourways yarn and it has arrived in Lake Macquarie Australia. Can you share the exact sequence to use please?

Hilary Airey

Hi can you let me know what kind of edging you decided on. I have finally finished my cosy blanket and did a row of trebles on one short end. When I turned the corner and continued up the long side, it looked uneven and lumpy. So I am wondering what to do now. Leaving it unedged looks unfinished. Many thanks. Hilary

Wanda Gelezinsky

I am a novice to crocheting. I love this pattern! Is there a printed version for a baby blanket size? The pattern seems to he the size for a twin bed. Thanks in advance.
