I’m making a giant 10x10m blanket using your pattern. It’s turning out really well but it is really heavy because it’s so large. Looking forward to when it’s finished however I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it.

I have a terrible time getting the count correct on a length of chain. Using Foundation Stitches for the starting chain and the first row. :-)
I am doing TWO Granny Stripe Blankets at the same time for my great-nieces.
Their mother didn't decide which blanket she wanted, so I made an executive decision and am making the little girls single bed blankets in Granny Stripe.
One will have it in the SUNNY colours and one in the another colourful pack.
So happy that I found a course on Craftsy, many years ago, called "Mastering Foundation Stitches".
I have already made a Ripple Blanket using Foundation stitches instead of a chain and a first row.
A bit tricky for the increases and decreases, but I did it. AND the blanket is the correct width. I failed in getting the width correct in the first two ripple blankets.
Foundation Double Crochet is a lot harder to do for me, than Foundation Treble.
One blanket is on the second colour. Yippee! Second blanket is still on the FDC.
Thank you for all your work in putting your ideas on this blog.

Greetings from the southern United States. I just now saw this blanket on TikTok and the comments directed me here. I’m so excited to get started, I’m going to make it for a king size bed which means I’m going to have to chain 396+2! I’m looking for a peaceful therapeutic project to work on in the evenings and the weekends. I think I found it.

How many yards of yarn are needed in the Granny Stripe blanket. I know it says 17x100g balls but am in the U.S.and just curious as to equivalent.
Thank you!

How many would I chain for a baby blanket please

Hello Lucy, I started to crochet long ago and made two granny square blankets with DK yarn. Since then a few bits and pieces. Recently I made a rainbow striped double bed blanket with double DK yarn, I sent a photo of it to a friend in Australia. I started life not far from you, in Keighley, West Yorkshire. At present I live in France and badly want to get home to the UK. Very Best Regards and thanks for your website.

Would like this blanket for a scrapy yarn knit along

Is there a written pattern for granny stripe? Thanks

Kathleen Chambers

I have just followed your pattern altho I did a slightly smaller throw and I am just so proud of the finished article! It's my first ever crochet project having been a life long knitter who could never quite master the art of crochet, but now I am well and truly hooked. Thank you so much for your easy to follow instructions. Can't wait to replenish my stash and get on with another of your lovely patterns!!


Hi Lucy,
I plan to make your Granny Stripe Blanket. I chose a Colour Pack with 13 skeins. Is that enough to make this blanket at the correct size or is it necessary to have 18. Also, will a 4.5 or 5.00 hook change the amount of yarn I need?
Thank you, Lisa


I’ve just started this and am so excited.
However, it seems the abbreviated pattern is actually different from the visual step by step above? Specifically Row 3. Which one is correct?
One says to chain 3 then work 1 tr
The other version says to start with 1tr

Please confirm!

Dear Lucy, thank you for a beautiful blanket. I purchased wool from Wool Warehouse and they were excellent , delivered all the wool in a gauze bag.I was in Hospital shortly afterwards and all I could think about were all these beautiful colours and starting the blanket. It was a joy for me to crochet the blanket and the Instructions so clear. I am still crocheting it, taking my time and enjoying it even more , because of the Covid Virus I am once again confined to home, so it is just wonderful to have the blanket to crochet and reading books etc.Thank You for sharing this Beautiful Blanket.I love it. I can see myself doing another one.Happy New Year to you and Family. Marie Kelly, Dublin, Ireland.

I am planning to start this blanket soon. Made a magic ball (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUazBDTUnQs) with all my fingering bits from knitting socks...SOOO FUN!!! ...and will start making one in baby size.
Your instructions are clear. Great photos. I will be referring to them often. I am a beginner crocheter. Thank you for sharing.

Jessica Freeman

Chained 200 and counted very very carefully twice. Still only getting 196 stitches at the end.

Hi: My name is Diana from Puerto Rico. I wanted to thank you for this lovely pattern. This will be my first blanket. Your instructions are very clear and the colors are so beautiful!! Now that we have to be closed in our homes do to COVID 19, this is really a blessing. God bless you and your family. 🤗

Dearest Lucy,

I'm writing to you all the way from Pakistan. I discovered your blog and your blanket by chance googling. I'm not sure if you'll even see or read this message since so many people follow and love and message you. I have taken crocheting back up at 34 after having learnt the basic stitches at age 10, 11, never having created a crochet project before. I've just been knitting all these years. My first project is your granny stripe blanket. im using aran yarn for it, 5mm hook, and its going to be 4.5 x 5.5 with your spot on edging. im 2/3 done almost. Your tutorials are so easy to understand, you explain each and every stitch, corner, turning, stripe, row so clearly that it is a joy following the instructions and seeing the work unfold. I'm Muslim and in my religion, a teacher and teaching is held in the highest esteem. I wish all the best for you and your family. May Allah bless you, lots of best wishes, Zokhruf from Lahore, Pakistan

I have ordered the yarn and cant wait to get started but is it possible to have a photo of the finished blanket
There is a photo on pintrest called tapecaria / granny stripe blanket which I think is yours.
the pintrest one has continuous edging??
Yours I think by what I can understand is like a box edge???
Thank you your blog site is beautiful.

Thanks very much for this pattern - I made a blanket for my great nephew who was born last month, and this pattern was really easy to follow. I did the Spot On edging too, and it finished it off really well.

Susan Doubell

This is lovely, i want to make this, will be my first blanket!


How can I get a download of this pattern?



OH MY GOSH! I love this blanket! Thank you for creating a perfect to follow pattern. I just made a "non traditional" baby blanket using 27 different colors and it came out AMAZING! I've never done granny square stripes before and I was able to whip out this blanket in a few days. I appreciate your detailed and super colorful pattern.
