Hi Lucy - just realised I have all the colours that you used in your first Granny stripe blanket already so will be using those. I know your order was random and I can get if from your pictures if necessary but am wondering if there is a list somwhere? Sorry to trouble you!

Claire Sandison

Hi Lucy. Absolutely love your blog. You are an inspiration yo so many. I have just started crocheting this year and i am on my second blanket. I am currently working on the granny steipe blanket in a rainbow colour pattern. Iam in love with the colours and the fact that crocheting has become my form of relaxation. Thank you for giving me the inspiration to have a go :)

Hi Lucy,
I am starting the granny stripe blanket and I chained 200, then did the dc in the stitches and ended up with 1 stitch less but made up for it at the end of the row. I then did the chain 3 and the treble, and the rest of the trebles in the row. I then checked my trebles against the number that you said one should have (2 tr at start, 65 tr groups and 2tr at the end). Well I only have 2 trebles at the start, 49 treble groups and 2 tr at the end.
I have done everything exactly as it's written so I don't know where I've gone wrong.
Feeling tired and deflated. My width measurement at this time is about 118cm.
Do you know where I might have gone wrong? Thank you in advance.

I am a beginner and would like to do your granny blanket in the colours of your coast blanket. I would then need to add 3 colours to the pack ordered. Any suggestions?

Thank you. Your blog is lovely.


Lucy is there any way you can present your stitches in graphic format? I have great difficulty following "verbal" instructions, but a graph makes it so much easier! Please try!
Thank you for such a beautiful & inspiring site.

Hi, lovely tutorial,I am thinking of making a blanket like this very interesting one ,,I love granny squares and stripe but never make anything with granny stripes



Hi Lucy, I love your blog and the pics of crochet have inspired me to learn. So as a beginner I'm attempting the granny stripe blanket but I wanted to do four rows of each colour, there's a pic of you doing a four row rainbow blanket under the caravan section of your blog which looks beautiful but I wanted to check if I'm not changing my colour every two rows do I still follow the pattern of doing 2 tr and then 1tr at the start and end of the rows or do I just do 1tr when I'm going to change colour? This may be a stupid question and become obvious as I'm crocheting but wanted to be sure as first project! Thank you for any advice x

Adele Teeling

Love this tutorial, have got the original pack (17 balls) will I have enough to complete the granny stripe blanket & border

Rosemary Baggott

Dear Lucy, I have such pleasure looking at your comments and pictures, and copying your crochet. Sunny log cabin and stripey version both coming along a treat. Sorry I'm unable to send any pictures as I don't have the relevant equipment. Your choice of colours is so much appreciated, because though I love crocheting (reaching obsession level I'm ashamed to say)I sometimes get the colour choices wrong, so it's a real treat to just follow someone else's choices which I love and can be seen before starting a project. Much love and thanks to you, Rosemary

I would like to know the length of yarn required to complete 2 rows of the granny stripe blanket so that I can put some yarn on smaller bobbins.

Marion de Jong

Hello Lucy,
I am from Holland and I Just want to say I love your blog and creations. That sunny cabin blanket those color!! Love it😍


My afghan measures 150. Will I have enough yarn? Also, do we need to order the four colors for the border or is there enough yarn in the package to complete it? Thanks.

Patty Davis

If I order the pack of 18 colors is there enough yarn to do the border also? Silly question I suppose but I need to know. Love your work!

idalina silva

thank you so much for showing how easy it is to make this lovely blanket. i am not very experienced. so this really helped. i am making a baby one first - for premature baby - then i will make one for me. love your work.

Ann Mare

Lucy, do you have a suggestion for a package in the white, beige, chocolate, brown etc. I saw a blanket with a combination of colors in the those colors but have not found a suitable combination...thank you for any assistance you can give me--much appreciated since I imagine how busy you must be....


I am brand new to crochet and would just love someone to help me with how to down size this to a throw (think aged parents, throw on knee in the evening)?
I know very simple question for experienced people!

Thank you xx


Received my wool yesterday & can't believe how simple this pattern is for a beginner like me who only started to learn in August. I'm already on my 5th colour stripe, it's just so simple & soothing to work & the colours give you such a lift.

Maggie Berry

Love your site , I am interested in getting some information on the yarns you use, what ply and are they available in Australia.

Love your colour choices.


I received my yarn but I'm missing Sage, Spice, Citron, Lime, Petrol, Claret, Gold and bright pink

I received Spring green, clematis, sherbet, Aspen, Cloud blue, Pommegrante, Claret and Saffron.

Maybe they sent me the wrong package but thats ok. Could you help me incorporate the colors I received into the Granny Stripe? I've finished with Aster so I'm going to use Spring Green next. What colors would you use for Spice, Citron, Lime, Petrol, gold and bright pink.

These things happen and I don't make a fuss. I love all of these colors so it will be okay. I wanted a blanket with your colors but maybe another time.

Thanks for any help and if you're too busy then I understand.

Ellen Pope

Mika Very fascinating

I can't wait to get back to the UK, on holiday in sunny Spain for next 2 weeks, will be on line ordering my yarn the minute I land.. I cannot wait to start my next project, too much excitement!!

Mary Ll. Jones

Will be sending off for the wool....soon. Thank you so much for the pattern . Lovely,Mary


Just a quick note to clarify that I always write my patterns using UK terms, I do explain this at the very beginning of every tutorial I write. It's easy to convert to US terms if you need to...
UK dc = US sc
UK tr = US dc

It's an easy confusion to make, hope that's helped.

Judy stites

Very pretty. I derstand u are talking. In UK terms. I will make this blanket. Thank you.

Teresa Bennett

Hi I'm sorry to tell you this but your names of the stitches are wrong you are calling a single crochet a double crochet and calling a double crochet a treble. I don't know if you want to change this at this point but look the stitches up and you will see what I mean.
