Your blanket is absolutely gorgeous. In what way does it differ from the original "cosy stripe" pattern?

Karin Nel

I just love your color coordination in everything you crochet. They're all beautiful!
Thank you for the pattern. 👌


Love the pattern

Cecelia Fuller

I assume I'm doing something wrong, but my rows keep getting longer and longer each row, and I though I was following this pattern correctly. anyone have any thoughts on why this could be happening?

dorothy baumgartner

OOPS! Found the size. Sorry, is 3:39 am here!

dorothy baumgartner

I saw this on LoveCrochet...fell in love! What a luscious blanket! Is this yarn available in the US? I must have missed it, but what is the finished size, please?


I love this blanket but the print is so small I cannot see it as I am old lol if you have a bigger print I would love it. Thanks for another beautiful pattern.


Is there a possibility of designing a knitting pattern for this blanket. I am unable to crochet, but love this so much.


I am sitting here looking at my finished cupcake blanket. It is so gorgeous- I have made all your blankets. The first one I made was the Cosy Stripe for my eldest daughter - the sides were so wonky but she loves it! I then made your Coast Ripple for my youngest, Granny Stripe (Coast Colours for my second) and Granny Stripe for my Mother in Law and Harmony for my niece's 21st! I made the Sunny Log Cabin blanket and keep it in the house to throw over my "children" if they come in late!!! I was going to keep the cupcake for that or for picnics but it is so beautiful and the edges are so straight I am going to give it as a 50th birthday present! Please start charging for your patterns as I would
buy them as they are released! You are a fantastic designer!


Has anyone made this as a double? If so, how many did you put in your starting chain? I'm a beginner and doing ok with crochet but working out chain length/ final size is bit beyond me yet! I've bought the yarn for a single but am tempted to upsize it. Thanks.

I am confused is this made with a DB crochet or a Treble crochet?

Ann Kelly

I'm loving making my lovely cupcake blanket for my grand daughter but I'm a little confused, 1st you chain the 198 stitches work your first row and at the end have 196 stitches? 2nd my work at one end has got off at an angle? I feel I need to unpick and restart


Love your blanket! It's the second one I am making. I'm just wondering: When I make a foundation that I can divide by three, the pattern does not work out. Shouldn't it be "divided by three plus 1"? Or am I missing something?

I have just moved from a 4Bedroom doublestory house to a 2-Bedroom unit. I had to cull everything BUT not my wool. I have huge containers of wool and here I am buying more ! Who could resist these beautiful colours. I shall have to follow the instructions in this pattern. Wish me luck please

Moly Hamilton

Though I have had a passion for knitting for 70 years I am an absolute beginner when it comes to crochet so.... Living in the tropics of North Queensland we don't have an occasion to wear lovely winter woollies. I knit continuously for my many grandchildren and daughters in law who live in southern states of Australia. I have now taken to knitting knee rugs. After seeng the scrumptious colours of the cupcake striped throw (I would be quite cross if I thought that one of my younger relatives did "throw" one of my rugs) I am going to make one for my daughter AND another for myself. Thank you so much for this beautiful colourful rug, I love it. My late husband knew what I meant Shen I said,"I must finish this pattern" that usually meant That I was ready to sit all night just waiting to finish "that pattern"

I love this blanket. It's my very first project at crochet and your site is amazing. Thank you so much. I can't wait to finish and start my next project. Could you help me out please? I would like to make a granny stripe throw, but being so new to this I have no idea of size or numer of chains for foundation or pattern rows. I know it's smaller but really can't work it out. Please please help I'm at a loss. Thank you again for your inspiration

Donna Blissett

Is it just me, or has anyone said they have put on extra weight crocheting this blanket? Mocha a.k.a cappuccino, apricot= peach/mango smoothie,fondant= strawberry/pineapple smoothie, cream= vanilla ice-cream lemom =keylime pie. The quicker I finish this blanket the sooner I'll be out of the land of 150 lbs. How did you manage?

I am crocheting this blanket but find my edges are not keeping straight, am I doing anything wrong.
I am really enjoying it the colours are delightful.

Hooray! My Cupcake yarn arrived in today's mail. I just finished a Cosy Stripe blanket in Sunny colors on Sunday and am making matching pillow covers. Still deciding what to make with Cupcake yarn...


Beautiful blanket in this colours I love it!

This combination is beautiful, thank you for sharing all you patterns and know how with us. I can't wait to receive my pack & start making it :)


How difficult is this project

Winifred Waite

That is a lovely blanket. Beautiful colours.

Lynne asked for knitting stitch suggestions to produce a similar blanket.
There is information here about a crochet look knit pattern which might work http://blog.loveknitting.com/crochet-like-knitting-stitch/

Lynne. Levey

Lovely colours in a very attractive sequence. I struggle to crochet, if I knitted this, could anyone suggest a stitch that would work please?


This looks pretty in these colors! When I am finished with my first Cosy Stripe, I'll have a difficult time choosing my next project!
