Hi. Love your blankets and thank you for the way you share them and your thoughts, etc - it really is lovely and a pleasure to visit your website.
I'm looking to make the Dune blanket in the colourwash version, but want to do it in a cotton or similar yarn that is light in weight, as I will be making the largest size. As we are in lockdown and I can't get out and about to look myself, can you recommend a yarn that would do justice to your design? I'm desperate to start!! Many thanks.

Jodie Kilworth

Would like to purchase the pattern for the Dune blanket
I already have yarn as I was to crochet another blanket but it was to hard
this looks like something I can do.

Carol Betteridge

Hi. I've just ordered the dune blanket pack but was wondering if it included the hook. If not could you tell me which size to buy please x

Can someone clarify the instructions on weaving in the ends? I'm new to crochet and don't understand them. I'm on my 3rd repeat of the colors and haven't woven in any ends yet. I'd love to do them along the way. Thank you.

Savannagal

I would like to darn in my ends along the way, but I don't understand your comment "Note : when darning in ends, make sure to leave the first and last stitches of each row intact and unstitched. This will allow you to work around the post of these stitches when
crocheting the first border row." I saw the photo in the Spike Stitch blog, but of course it looks different from the shell pattern. I am a beginning crocheter so I'm just not sure how to darn in gracefully and securely. Any extra help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I just posted a comment, but think I had the name wring. Its actually called the Dune blanket- if not possible please help me with a different pattern - under full lockdown so I cannot go anywhere to look for some and I do LOVE yours.

Here I am, lock down in South- Africa, lost my job, but with the cupcake and hydrangea blankets finished. My granddaghters love them to bits. At that stage my partner ordered more colours which I loved and now after years I di have the time to crochet a blanket. Something that will keep me sane and my mind off the CV-19 virus. Are there any any chance for me to get the pattern of the seashell blanket. I cannot afford any more buying at this stage but....I can try.

Where is the pattern for ammonites please? I would love to make a bunch of them and hang them up as a garland. Please let me know where to find the pattern.

I have just started my dune blanket and gone to check my tension and it says the 3rows should measure 120 cm,now me not knowing my cm from my ins ,I’ve just argued that it must be right that my 3rows should measure 120cm ,but then it says the blanket should measure 120cm!!!!

Kim Phillips

Hi, I have made several of your blankets and really enjoyed doing them. I was thinking of making the Dune one for a friend who is expecting a baby - but it is too large - please can you advise on making it say 120 x 120cm without losing the colour effects too much. Thanks Kim

Donna Thompson

I have purchased the Dune Blanket pack.

There is no pattern in the pack and on the sheet in the pack it states that the pattern can be downloaded from here.

However, I cannot find the pattern on here and above it states that the pattern is included in the yarn pack?

Where can I find the pattern please???

Krista E Bandy

I couldnt find an email for you. I have an issue that you might be able to help. kerbandy@gmail.com

Where is the pattern for ammonites please?

Just finished this gorgeous cosy blanket. I used a different colour way of my own devising - based around the lilacs flowering in our Swiss garden, which also hark back to my childhood on the Isle of Wight, when my mother would have armfuls of lilacs in a huge purple glass vase on the hall table. I have now left that little bit of paradise so it's a nice reminder.

Rona Phillips

Hi my Dune blanket is getting bigger at one side what am I doing wrong and how can I manage it without forging it.

Sue Hockaday

Hi I fell in love with the colours of the dune blanket and have decided to work the colour wash version. May have enough yarn to make it bigger! Would I still use the same colours for the edging as the stripe blanket?

Karen Parkinson

Hi Lucy I love all your blankets and not being a brilliant at crochet I do them all in the hydrangea pattern which I love doing.i wonder if you could give me a repeating 15 stripe pattern for the harmony and moorland packs.

Sandra

You always inspire me Lucy! The colour choices and the stories behind them set my creative mind a-buzzing and it will not stop until I had listened to it. The Dune story inspired me to create some bunting that would go with the blanket. The free pattern and photo tutorial is on my blog: https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com/2019/05/27/beach-bunting-adding-beads-and-shells/

Hope you like it!

Tracy Miller

Where is the pattern for the little shells please.

R Cooling

Please can we have the pattern for the ammonites? Or have I missed it?

Sue Palmer

In your Dune blanket intro you show the colours as crochet ammonites - is it possible to have the pattern for these? They're amazing! I love fossils and would love to make some crochet ones with my blanket leftovers
Thanks for fantastic patterns

jill delf

Love this pattern I can’t put it down. It’s easy and I am not great at crochet.


Janet Cairns

In your first photo you show a different tonal arrangement for the rows. Would you be able to tell us the colour order you used please.

Gudrun Gericke

Deine Dünendecke ist einmalig. Ich habe sofort nach Erhalt der Wolle angefangen zu häkeln, die Wolle macht sich echt toll. Meine Freundin ist auch ganz begeistert, sie will auch eine Dünendecke häkeln, also bestelle ich ihr gleich Heute das Wollpaket.

Tania Willoughby

I have just ordered my pack too, hope it doesn't take too long getting to Australia. I look forward to starting this, the colours looks great together, Tania ,Sydney Australia
