Hi Lucy
I bought cupcake blanket pack yesterday at Blacksheep
You told me the pattern was on your website.
Please would you help me find this as I want to start blanket

Jackie Butterill

Can we have replies to all the questions please.

Pam Duniven

How is it that you skip a stitch on row 5 every time that it doesn’t come out at an angle on that side


Is there any way to get this pattern into a PDF? I'd like to print it and have it with me when I take my crochet outside the house. Beautiful work

Hi! I love, love, love your patterns and colour combinations.
I am making a collection of baby blankets for several friends who are expecting little ones over the next few months, and I would like to try your beautiful cupcake pattern. How long should my starting chain be to make it toddler duvet kind of size? And which style craft DK shades would you recommend to make it a pastel rainbow blanket?

Donna Short

Love this pattern!!
Thanks for sharing it!
I have......hoarded yarn.
Lots of it. Mostly Red Heart
worsted weight acrylic.
Would this be ok to use
for this blanket?
Thanks 🌺

Just started crochet about 6 months ago but am going to attempt this Cupcake blanket !!
I have practiced on a small piece and the stitch is simple, but I have one question which I'm not sure about.
When I am starting to make a treble, do I put the hook into 2 loops or just one loop before doing yarn over .

This is a big project for me and I really want to get it right.

vicki ohara

a double crochet is yarn over once a treble is yarn over twice whicn one do in use

vicki ohara

would like to make this but would like to buy yarn at walmart or michaels can you suggest a comparable yarn to use?

Kathy Huff

Thank you for sharing.
I'm going to start this tomorrow.


Michelle Baier

A beautiful piece ! I hope to make one soon! Thank you for sharing!

Lillian Dobrijevic

Hi. Can anybody help me. I'm am a little computer illiterate.!. I have downloaded the pattern but it won't let me print it off.!

Vicki V Olsen

I like it but everything is UK. I'm in US. What kind of yarn shd I use


I just finished this blanket, I followed all directions to a t. One side goes off at an angle, maybe blocking it will help, any suggestions?

Cheryl Maskell

Hi Lucy,
Cannot wait for the cupcake pack to arrive tomorrow...just finishing of the cosy stripe...have loved this one. As a beginner, you have guided and helped me learn so much over the past few months and I thank you for that.

The cupcake blanket is for my 5 yr old great niece which I''m taking out to Australia in October. If I wanted to make it smaller, what starting chain would you recommend. Still have Moorland pack patiently waiting to explode out of the basket!

Thanks for your inspiration....bring on the hydrangea pattern...my fave flowers, I have a garden full of them!

Happy wishes😊💚


The links to the WoolwareHouse website don't work anymore :(?


What weight is the cupcake yarn.
What size us hook

I guess I have a question: If I have any questions about a step or anything else about the pattern, I can follow the step by step for the Cosy Strip Blanket?

When I saw this on Pinterest (via a link to this blog), I fell in love with the colors. Imagine my surprise that it's a British pattern and yarn company.

I looked to see if I could find it in the U.S. I could, but not cheaply. So, I converted pounds to U.S. dollars and made the purchase. I also bought three other balls of cotton viscose because the color of the red in the picture was beautiful. I bought red, black and silver. The total cost was 29.58 pounds (approximately $37.51).

I just received my yarn. I love all of it and can't wait to get started on the blanket. After I finish my current project, that is. I'd definitely order kits like this again from Wool Warehouse.

Ok, ignore my last rant, just realised the link brings you back to your blog (in a roundabout way). As you were! Just looking out for your interests! 😕😜 Merry Christmas all! 🎄🎁🍷 XX

Becky Phillis

Hi Lucy, I've just seen this http://pin.it/_51eew4 on Pinterest - not sure if you are aware or affiliated with these people but I couldn't see your 'Attic24' name mentioned anywhere. It's a shame that people can't think up their own ideas and resort to stealing others and passing them off as their own! Keep doing what you're doing, I love your work XX


Sandee, the kit has 15 different colored balls of yarn. The "90" is the number/color order of the stripes in the blanket. Each ball will be used to make 6 two row stripes throughout the blanket in random order (15 balls of yarn x 6 stripes = 90). Your first stripe, Row 1 is Cloud Blue and your last row, Row 90 is Sherbet. Hope this helps. Happy hooking!


where do we find the answers to all these questions?


ok stupid question....it said use 15 balls of yarn. But the list has 90 balls of yarn. Do I just 15 of the colors. Sorry, new to all this. Thanks
