Paula Cina

I ordered the wool pack for the cosy blanket as a treat to myself. I was not disappointed. It came beautifully packed in a lovely bag. There was also an easy to follow pattern in color with good instructions and a colour chart to follow. My Easter break is sorted, making my Cody blanket. The colours are even nicer in the flesh. Thank you so much and happy Easter 🐣


P.S. very quick delivery too


Hint for blanket growing.First, thank you SO much for the beautiful pattern, caught my eye right away. I just finished my first throw and it was SO easy and lovely. It’s definitely on my keeper, gift, and scrap list, which I believe it would be PERFECT for. Another thing, was noticing that some people were having a bit of trouble and I would like to humbly suggest stitch markers. I used a pink one always on the skip chain, and another color on the top of the turning chain, moving them up as I went. It truly made it a BREEZE. I’m pretty sure that’s why some people were having problems with sizes getting wonky. I forgot myself at the beginning occasionally, pulled out stitch markers, problem solved. Hopes this helps!

Kathryn Pless

Love this! This pattern would be a great stash buster. Thanks for sharing.


Love Love Love this pattern! I'm nearly finished with the last round of edging. I'm making it as a wedding gift and the bride wanted Christmas colors so it's cranberry, kelley green, & mustard. I'm hoping the choices make her smile and that she wants to keep it out more than just for the Christmas season. It's really pretty.

I want to make another one with your colors for ME, so badly!!! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern for the blanket and the perfect edging to go with it. I'm a forever fan :)

hi can you please help i am almost dyslexic when it comes to patterns and am a beginner i cant follow patterns but i have managed to follow your videos i am currently doing the cosy style blanket but i couldn't find a video for the border could you please do one . i know there are pictures of it in pattern but i still cant understand unless shown. may thanks for your help truly grateful .


I'd like to make a baby blanket with this pattern. How many chains to get it started or if you have a baby blanket pattern for this that would be great!


Hello from Indiana USA! I found you when I was looking for a tutorial to make a holly leaf and berries. Yours was the best looking and had the best directions. I've been obsessively reading your blog since then. :)

I had a blanket to make for a wedding gift where the bride wanted particular colors but left it to me to choose the pattern so I came straight here. Love the look of this Cosy Stripe and that it's a fast and easy one to make. I'm using Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn and a 5.5mm hook but still using your numbers so it's bigger than yours but it's just lovely! Thank you for your wonderful ideas, amazing tutorials, and for letting us all have free access. Once I'm able I'll be buying you a whole pot of coffee for your help and inspiration :)

I didn't know there were different names between the stitches depending on whether you're from the UK or US. If I understood your note, what you call a TC in the UK is actually a DC in the US? Is what you call a Trebel stitch in UK what we would call a Single Crochet?

I started working on the Cozy Stripe Blanket right after Christmas and just realized that even though I chained the 190, my blanket is 166cm wide instead of the 120cm wide that the pattern says it should be. I’m using a 4mm hook so I’m not really sure where I went wrong. My question is if I continue on and want to make the blanket the 170cm long it’s supposed to be...how much more yarn will I need and in which colors to complete the blanket. I’m terrible at math (I have a degree in English Literature), so attempting to figure this out myself would be futile!! Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to make a double throw for double bed how many stitches and how many balls of wool


HELP, HELP, I need help please. Row 3 and Row 4 are off by 1 clump of treble each, then Row 5 is off by 5 trebles. My first 2 rows came out fine, so what caused the other rows to go short?

Would appreciate your help in anyway you can?


Thank you so much for posting this beautiful pattern. I have been looking for an easy striped blanket that I love for awhile now and it seems I've found it! :)


Help! I have restarted this blanket 3 times now because I just can't seem to keep the same number of stitches in each row. Where am I going wrong? Do you have a stitch count per row or number of clusters per row? I just don't know what's happening...
Hoping you can help...


Really great tutorial. You explain it so well and I really enjoyed making it...now for the border!

Elisabeth Coyne

I made this blanket last year in the months before and after my dad's death. It was comforting to just sit and get absorbed in my crochet and enjoy the softness of the yarn in my hands, and enjoy being swaddled in the blanket as it grew on my lap. This year, I'm enjoying the warmth of it wrapped around me in the evenings, and loving the rows of gentle colours. It has brought me a lot of comfort and I'm planning to start on the Moorland blanket soon! Thank you for creating something beautiful which has helped me at an important time.
